as far as i know, planetweb 3.0 has the latest revisions for Java, SSL, Flash, and a few other things

i'm not sure if it has the best 'performance', because planetweb 3.0 is really crashy and unreliable even using a GD-ROM

XDP is english translated Dream Passport 3, but there was a later version called "Dream Passport Premier" which is supposed to be better and included a built-in Genesis\Mega Drive and PC Engine emulator that Sega digitially distributed ROMs similar to Steam. servers for this service are obviously defunct these days

but between Dream Key, Dream Passport, and Planetweb, they all have their tradeoffs. Passport seems to support more, but planetweb looks better in terms of how it renders the HTML page

documentation for the browsers is kind of spotty and scattered around the surface net and web archive. you really have to go info mining to learn anything

so by game streaming, you meant web games like flash\java games? or full on binary streaming an execution (which i have no idea how you'd do that)?

JavaScript-based games - that's why I was interested in the JS performance of the DC browsers.

Instructions:
1) Go to http://www.nz17.com/interactive/dreamca ... ls/01.html with your Dreamcast. It might take up to two minutes for the trial to complete during which time your screen will be blank.
2) Report back here with the trial's time from that Web page and the name and version number of the DC Web browser which you used. If you only get a blank page by going there, then report that too.

Will try to do it once I'm home. I'll need to re-burn XDP (?) browser.

Click the "Start Trial" button with your mouse or DC controller. The page will appear to be "frozen" for a few seconds while the page counts from 1 to 10,000,000.
