We already know that the Wii U internet browser supports HTML 5 but now Nintendo have revealed more details about the new console's browser.
For starters, it has been announced that the Wii U will run a NetFront browser (NX v2.1). According to an HTML 5 comparison, it outperforms all current generation consoles by a long way.
You will not be able to download, save or upload videos or pictures while the browser won't support plug-ins, such as flash.
Video formats include H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC Video) and MP4 which means it will play HD videos no probs while AAC codecs ensure that the sound will be high quality.
As we already know, the browser can run on your TV or via the Gamepad. You'll be able to pause your game, search for tips online, and then start playing again where you left off.
Do you think you will use the Wii U to browse the internet?
