Opera Software "The DS Browser ends up becoming a bullet point for the Nintendo DS system's capabilities. Yes, the Nintendo DS can now surf the internet. But after the novelty wears off, you probably won't want to", Craig Harris writes in his review. Craig was very kind to send us a DS screenshot rendering the mobile version of OSNews, although the browser seems to interpret "100%" of cell width as 800px wide instead of DS' 256px native resolution. Update: Craig sent us another shot, this time using the "small screen rendering" mode, which looked much better.

Well, if a page is done "right", the structure is in the html, whereas the design is in the css. Now it is easy to ignore the CSS and still have a good structured page. Next thing would be to accept colors from the CSS, perhaps some framings, and graphics. This is not heavy yet. You can get rid of exact measurements and sizes.

Sure there are more decent text browsers than lynx. I just wanted to point out that a good designed website can be very good readable _even_ on lynx. Now put some graphics support and what I wrote above into lynx and you have a primitive browser, which still gives relatively good looking and for sure good readable output.

Problem is, this really works well with _only_ good written html pages (where _every_ design thing is in CSS!).

For example, this website gives high CPU load (because of the transparency thing):

Still you can have fun with it with "every" primitive browser, too.
