It has been revealed that Nintendo Switch Lite will use ACCESS's NetFront Browser NX to address its needs on the Internet, continuing a partnership between Nintendo and ACCESS, which has continued for a decade.  According to a press release announcing the partnership, the browser component will be used for purposes such as connecting your Nintendo account, using a Nintendo eShop and posting screens on social media. We explored it a little more in detail when the original Switch first came on the scene (because it uses the same technology), but here's a quick description of how it all came from an older press release:
"NetFront Browser NX is a component of a WebKit based browser that has ultra-low levels of memory utilization, powered by unique ACCESS technology, which improves memory efficiency and guarantees powerful rendering of various devices and operating systems.
