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
