Actually even on an Export to CocoonJS for IOS or Android. It's in fact running on effectivly a browser based technologies. Often either using Mozilla or Chromes V8 to handle JavaScript. A UIWebView which is a minimal browser window.

However, often many of the extention features are lacking. Audio, Mic, camera, tilt GPS. Then the writers of the wrapper link them it.

In away Its' a custom browser with the only job of running the one web application as fast as possible.

@jayderyu - LOL Most of that was well over my head.
But from the ScirraMark, it doesn't sound like C2 would work on the 3DS browser anyway... And it would look really odd and be two small being on dual screens.

According to this Wiki page, it seems that there's some serious lacking in the department of overall support. Not that I understand most of it.
I'm sure @Ashley can make sense of it.

Browsers are moving quickly, with 6 week updates from Firefox and Chrome. Keeping up with these releases if you have a browser on another platform, e.g. the 3DS, is difficult and time consuming work. That makes it expensive, so unless there is a strong motivation to make the browser excellent, they probably won't bother updating the browser. I guess not many people actually browse the web on console devices like that, so they don't have the motivation to keep it up to date. I think they just want to say "...and you can browse the web!" and be done with it... never mind if it is so old it's riddled with compatibility problems!Ashley2013-04-22 13:55:06

That makes sense. And it's unfortunate, too. It would at least be cool to CONCEIVE of ideas that might be 3DS-specific via C2. Ah well...maybe NEXT Nintendo DS system release......
