So, this is me attempting to create a topic using the 3DS browser. What other unique methods do you guys use?

My two most interesting 'browsers' have been:

A Dell Axim X30 (Windows CE, using built in wifi the PDA had, from both the Internet Explorer that came with the OS, and a third party Opera browser).

A generic LG flip phone, with a EVDO data connection. The browser was slow, the connection was slow, but once or twice I used it to check/post to the forums.


On a random note, I've posted to the CQFF from the default browser of: (I cant remember if Windows 95 came with IE, or if it was separate...) Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 7, Mac OS 9.2.2, Mac OS X 10.1, Mac OS X 10.2, Mac OS X 10.3, Mac OS X 10.4, Mac OS X 10.6, Mac OS X 10.7, Windows CE, Ubuntu (various versions).

I've accessed the forums through different versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, SeaMonkey, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Netscape, and at least two third-party fan made browsers (all of which base from the previous ones).

I've accessed the forums via dial-up, DSL, cable, direct T1 (I think), EVDO, 3G, and 4G. Via phone line, Cat5, Cat6, WiFi B, G, and N, and Verizon data networking.

I have steadily accessed the forums at home and school since I was pointed to it in 2007 (+/- 1 year).

I have attempted to access it from my Apple Newton (lack of connectivity), from my 68k PowerBook 180 (lack of connectivity), and my PS3 (lack of a comprehensible web browser). All computers and devices I possess have been attempted to connect to a modern network, and barring these exceptions, all my devices I've owned in an operating state have connected to and used to at least browse the Chex Quest Fan Forums at least once in their usage.

Feel honored, CQFF. Feel honored.
Don't remember me as I was...I was an idiot.

*slow clap for Atari*

The most unique I can think of was using the Wii browser for it.

When I'm on the go, I post from my NOOK. Pretty sure that I'm the only one here who has one they use consistently.

Oh, and speaking of the NOOK; I convinced my mom to buy a NOOK for herself. She is addicted to Angry Birds now.

Who here thinks that a "mobile" version of the forum should be made? There are scripts that allow for detecting the current web browser...

Atari... you just won 42 internets.

The most unique for me was my... LG flip phone xD (But most of the time, it's just computer...)

Right now, I'm posting via Steam's Big Picture Mode.

With a standard keyboard and mouse. I don't have a controller to test that aspect of it.

I'm frequently checking posts on my phone now, but we *really* need a mobile site... it's horrible to use on the phone.
Use the CQ IRC channel! (were it working...)

Current Projects:
Chex Quest: The Great Invasion (on hold)
Chex Quest Skulltag Pack - mapper
The Chex Crusades: Return to Bazoik
Map of Epic (unannounced. If you notice this and ask about, good for you. You won't get any information. And I am out o

Bump for a new usage:

Web browser using built in wifi on a PSP-1000. My phone was better than this thing XD

Before even the top banner loads, the browser complains of lack of memory, and loads no more images. All content is shifted to the right despite being perfectly formatted (something better than my phone, though). Its also slow, as it runs Wifi B, and the browser hasn't really been well updated since 2006 or so. Doesn't make for so good an experience, but I didn't have my laptop/iPad handy and wanted to see what was what...it works in a pinch.

Then come to find out the exact same software runs the PS3 browser T_T;
PS3 web browser fails.

...Sorry to bump, but the things I've used the CQFF on are:

Walmart store laptop (Windows 8)
Kindle fire (Not Kindle Fire HDX or HD)
Cellphone (Not Iphone)
And finally,
Ipod Touch

And once, I accessed the forum through the Kindle Paperwhite.
