For those who haven't downloaded it yet. It's free now. If you did you get a game, in October.

EDIT: They sent a message to Wii's about it. Apparently they updated the flash from Flash 7 to Flash Lite 3.1 (which is 8 I guess) but its still not as powerful. Isn't Flash up to 10 now?

Normally I'd agree. But surfing the internet on the Wii is so retarded that I support shaming people by making them pay for it.

Oh gawd! That was awful. I am never getting online again on the Wii. If I paid for that I would have been kicking myself.

The Wii Browser is only good for watching Youtube on your TV and EVEN THEN it lags.

It boggles my mind how a console that can process a game like Mario Galaxy cant handle a single video stream.

Yea Opera is not a good browser. Except maybe their mobile one. Anyways, yea it complete sucks on the Wii. I find it odd that they update Flash with still an old? version of flash.

Opera is an amazing browser for PC. In my opinion it beats the crap out of IE and Firefox.

However yes, the Opera browser for Wii sucks. I'm not sure if it's Operas fault for building a bad browser or the Wii's fault for not being engineered to handle web content.
