Internet Browser is a web browser preloaded on the Nintendo Switch. It is the NetFront NX browser, which is based on Webkit.

The browser functionality is not accessible to the user, since there is no app for it. However, it can be accessed via an exploit. When linking the Nintendo Account with Facebook, the Facebook Auth website will open, offering a search box that can be used to browse the internet. Alternatively, it can be accessed with custom DNS settings which simulate a Wi-Fi login page.

Some old exploits like browserhax_fright_tx3g crash the browser but are probably not usable
