Why is the 3DS internet app so bad?

It can't go to Miiverse...

The browser version of Miiverse was built for Mobile Phones and PC.

3DS is getting its own Miiverse app later, so I don't see a reason for it to work on the Browser.

On a side note, the Internet Browser works great for me for the purposes I need it for.

The only reason the 3DS browser should be used at all is to pause a game when you're stuck, check GameFAQs to see how to beat it, and then resume playing.

Sorry, but I don't see why it not accessing Miiverse makes the app bad. 3DS will get it's own Miiverse later.

Haha, this is exactly what I use it for!

3DS's doesn't have much RAM, and only dedicates a tiny amount of it to the browser, that's why.

That's also why it's a generally terrible browser. It's really only marginally better than PSP's crappy 2004 browser.

I'd wonder if it wouldn't have a problem with loading all of the images on a standard Miiverse page.

But, it does look like the 3DS browser's UserAgent string is indeed what the site's using to block the 3DS browser. I changed my Firefox UserAgent string to that of the 3DS ("Mozilla/5.0 (Nintendo 3DS; U; ; en) Version/1.7498.US"), and the Miiverse site blocked it.

That moment when the Vita can access Miiverse before the 3DS XD
