Wii Opera Browser (Wii)

By: Rex Inego | Mar 16, 2007 10:59 AM

To be honest I dont thin there is anything to get really excited about. This is a console browser, and as such many of the normal features you have come to expect have been dropped to keep things simple.

Whilst being fairly attractive to look at the browser just doesnҒt have enough content to make it decent. If you have the browser then it must mean you have access to the internet in the first place.

Despite this though, considering the fact that the browser happens to be for free, (for now until the real version comes out with more features hopefully) and its fun to move around your favourite sites with the Wii remote. Typing in website addresses works fairly well, and the QWERTY isn֒t bad, however I find I prefer using the Mobile Phone style of input as it is generally quicker. Something else that is god to note is that because the browser is simple, flash files load very quickly, so if you are browsing around You Tube then you will find that videos load very nicely. Apart from that you cannot really say much, as for the current time the Opera Browser is a Beta.

Pros: - Nice to look at - Fun for a few minutes - Good loading of flash files - The Wii remote works as a good mouse - Free

cons: - Far too basic - Takes up too much room on your Wiis memory - If you have the internet already (which you should if you are reading this) then there is not actual point for it

conclusion: If you want to have a bit of fun messing round the internet with the Wii remote then it works fine but be warned about the simplicity. Just to note, some websites have now optimised some flash games to work with the Wii remote which is nice. In a word - Basic
