Apologies if this has been posted.

http://html5test.com/results/gaming.html

WiiU - 323 and 8 Bonus points
Vita beta - 243 and 2 bonus points

360 - 120 and 5 bonus points
3DS - 109 and 0 bonus points
Wii/DSi - 94 and 0 bonus points
Vita - 58 and 0 bonus points (lol)

This scores favorably compared to other gaming browsers. I'm not home so I can't check the PS3 browser's score and it's not on the page for some reason. I do remember it being pretty bad, vita level of bad.

The WiiU browser's score is really good, obviously not as good as desktop browsers and not iOS, Chrome, Opera, FF mobile good either. It's also a little worse than some internet tv browsers, but other than that it's as good as it gets and it's, by far, the top score for a browser on a gaming device.

Only 50 points less than Firefox 18 so, not too shabby.

Don't use browsers on game systems anyway, so kind of a non-issue for me.

Though the Wii U's does sound good.

So those old "3DS on par with 360" hype rumours were true.

The fuck is a Vita Beta?

And I find the 3DS browser quite useful, I've been doing some Kid Icarus sub-quests lately and I always check GameFAQs while playing.

But overall, it's not a good browser, you can't play flash videos, copy/paste or have more than one tab.

The 360 is at an instant disadvantage since it is based on IE.

You don't need to sell you soul as long as you have 4 breasts. Kaz likes what he likes.

This sounds promising to me, Wii U should be good enough for emails and YouTube or to upload photos, if it supported pdf, .txt and rich text formats it could also make like a sort of ebook reader, albeit with a limited range.

By the way I find somehow odd that DSi and Wii have the same score, as they're very different from each other: unlike DSi Wii Opera can play Youtube videos but doesn't have a cronology like DSi has and so on.

It's also my understanding that the Wii U browser uses the system's "background resources", so that means just the ARM chip, 1GB OS/shared RAM, 512MB flash, etc.

Wouldn't use the browser on a "traditional Console". With the Wii U Gamepad I may find myself using it when the wifey has the iPad since it looks like the browser will be decent.

Wii/DSi - 94 and 0 bonus points

does this mean they share the same browser?

I wonder if the WiiU is NetFront or Opera?

I have never heard of Nintendo reusing anything, doubt they would start now.

they are both from Opera though. I have to admit I did spend over 8 months surfing the web using my Wii when my laptop screen cracked and died

I was on GAF using my Wii for a very long time I got to know all about its limits from Opera's support site lol

I actually liked using the Wii browser and the fact that the PS3 (From what I saw from friends using it) and the 360 (Non existent til now) were pretty subpar, so I'm happy to hear the Wii U browser is way better.

website devs need this kind of info so it is easy to set up tests for this kind of thing from the HTML5 standards

the more features you are missing the less you score and the less use the browser has.
