        • i certainly hope so.. can’t happen fast enough for me.. i can’t count the numbers of times flash has caused crashes on my system
          that wii-u supports html5 so well is a good sign
          i don’t doubt that many people will use it for their everyday surfing.. this will encourage web developers to move further towards html5

            • i’m not really concerned about how complicated it is for the developer to animate content.. i don’t care much for heavily animated websites anyway
              i do care about flash causing instabilities on my system however

    • Dear Sir,
      You will be sad to learn, Nintendo does not pay licensing fees for things such as flash.
      You should be happy to know that many large scale companies, including Apple & google, are pushing te migration to HTML5, which will completely replace flash by 2022.

      WiiU scoring high for HTmL5 means that flash games, embedded animation and the things you love about flash, will be supported in the new HTML version.

      Have no fear. Nintendo knows what it is doing, and if you don’t fully trust Nintendo, know that Apple and Google are pushing the HTML5 future.

  1. I wouldn’t raise hopes up completely yet. How come it says the PS Vita got a score of 243 under Beta testing but under the actual list of released browsers it got a score of merely 58. So we’ll just have to wait and see.

    • Because the Beta version could be an upgraded version they are testing *hint hint* Beta. The current browser most likely “isn’t one par” if you will. So they may be testing another one and found it to be “slightly on par”, excuse me for my “”.

    • I agree, but say you want to look up cheat codes (Most gamers don’t, only for fun when they do) the Wii U automatically copies the game’s title and you can have a “quick search” if you will. I would assume many people wouldn’t use the browser considering they have Miiverse “a finger away” to ask their question and look for cheats. Someone contact someone about “gamers” not being a real word, we need to get that added into the dictionary…

  9. I’m a plugin coder for wordpress platforms. I’ve designed a plugin which will accumulate web browsers emails on your database
    without needing their interaction. I am trying to choose ‘beta’ test candidates and furthermore, as you have been getting large sums of website vistors,
    I’m thinking about you and the weblog. Could you be interested?
