Opera Browser for the Wii

Tonight I was reading some of my favorite sites, one of them being Neowin.net.  They had a story about Nintendo now allowing you to download the Internet Channel for free on the Wii.  The browser is Opera which includes Flash Lite 3.1.  So I gave it a shot and it wasn’t too bad.  It will be several years IMHO before it would replace a browser on a PC, but for the most part I was able to view this site with the YouTube video links, look at the pictures I took  at the circus, and search on Google.  I tried to read a PDF but received an error stating it could not open it – unsupported file format or something.

Since I don’t have a Wii keyboard, I had to use the remote to point to each letter on the screen keyboard to enter a url.

Here is the story from Neowin.
