Is it possible to enable add-ons like Flash and Javascript in the web browser for the Nintendo DSi?

Javascript should work perfectly fine in the DSi browser but Flash on the other hand is not possible and likely won't be as itis very CPU intensive. Source.

On a second look it appears the source didn't consider the DSi but what I said should still be applicable.

It's not simply that Flash is too CPU-intensive (though that is likely true). Flash is a binary plugin - another piece of software, separate from the browser, whereas Javascript interpreters are built into the browser. So for Flash to be available on a given platform such as the DSi, Adobe would have to create a version for that platform, then Nintendo would have to include it with their browser. This has obviously not happened.
