Not gonna lie, I was curious about this for a while before I ran into this video.

Really interesting when you also think about how far internet browsing has become in general...

That's pretty awesome. I was surprised Xbox couldn't browse the web, Dreamcast ended up being the only system that could until the Xbox 360. Too bad about old web browsers having tons of issues with HTTPS certs, it really makes them difficult to use.

This feels so surreal to watch. Who would have thought this was possible lol. More power to Dreamcast, I suppose. What an amazing console she was!
