Flash and Java dont count as answers. but i mostly think that one of the best features needed is a copy/paste. even animal crossing wild world had copy/paste button. im glad that the broswer is still in beta though. yet something else that would be cool to have is a youtube app that would be the bomb=].

P.S.also what would be some good free apps?

YouTube requires Flash, though hopefully with the upcoming HTML 5 audio/video tags, that will cease to be true. Maybe YouTube will even switch to an unencumbered media format like Ogg; that would be nice.

As for a feature, I'd have to say a mode that is something like the ImgLikeOpera addon for Firefox. By default, this mode should be off; when turned on, it won't load any images unless you specifically tell it to load one. I like fast, and this would make it fly.

Irrelevant for me, though. I'm not sinking money into a DSi when my regular DS works just fine.

The DSi isn't powerful enough to use flash, I believe. What I'd to see is the ability to make preset messages for email addresses etc.

Streaming videos off the internet is different.

The DSi doesn't neccessarily need flash to view YouTube videos, just the ability to extract the video URL from the page, and the ability to stream, and render that video stream. But most likely, there would need to be a server in-between rendering the video into a format that would fit the DSi

But if such a thing were possible, it'd be great. :D

I know this is a bit off topic but I think they're should be apps (kind of like iPod/iPhone) for the DSi.There could be one for yahoo messenger,or even for skype.
