They promised, and now they have delivered. Those of you using the Wii might be interested in the Opera browser for the console, released today in trial form. Using the Wiimote as a form of wireless mouse, Wii users can now browse the Internet. Taking the average TV display in mind, Opera for Wii “intelligently” zooms text or other objects that would normally be difficult or impossible to read on the screen, has support for Flash and AJAX applications, such as Google Maps and video content on YouTube.
This is not the final version of the browser for Wii, which is slated for March of next year. As a kudos to early adopters, however, anyone who downloads it before June 30 of next year will get to use it for as long as they own their Wii. After that point, the browser will cost 500 Wii points. Read more at the Opera site.
