    I quick Google was all anyone ever needed...

    To be honest, I hate Opera for PC and prefer Maxthon over it.

    Check it out here: www.maxthon.com

    I use firefox, love it.

    I dont' have a DS. If anyone has one or knows: How do you type stuff on the DS? is there some on screen keyboard? If so or whatever way the DS uses, it might be how they type on the Wii.

    [edit]

    found it, on screen keyboard and letter recognizer. The on screen keyboard might be used for the Wii. Not sure about letter organizer because it seems akward because you don't have a hard surface to write on but it seems possible.

    Try Maxthon for a week and you'll forget Firefox ever existed.


    Fortunately, Wii users will have the option to use a keyboard, even though it isn't necessary.

    The worst handheld browser so far has to be the PSP's. I still can't get over how horrible the predictive text is.

    firefox has tabs to, whats the use for built in email when you can dl an equivelent thing for firefox, and the speed of them is only effected slightly(might take an extra .5 of a second here or there)

    I've still got you both beat:

    Maxthon includes numerous features that you'd have to find extensions for with Firefox... and just don't exist in Opera.

    Check it out if you haven't:

    First of all, there's no reason be an ass about it, simply put.

    Second, if you would've read every post in the thread, you would see that users were not only talking about the Wii's browser, but also their preferred browser; I simply stated mine. Nowhere did I complain about the Wii's browser. In fact, I'm happy they chose Opera over Firefox- at least then will the Firefox fanboys see that while their browser is good, it could be improved.

    If you want to be a biggot, fine, but you have no reason to question who does or doesn't "give a damn" about anything anyone posts. That would be the equivalent to someone questioning who "gives a damn" about your posts.

    If you like Opera, wait until you try Maxthon.

    It has everything Opera has, plus more. Not to mention, it's lighter on resources, thus faster.

    Again, if you want to make snide remarks, go for it; you're just belittling yourself.

    The reason I mention it is not only because the browser very hard to find if you aren't browsing the right sites, but also because I do believe that those who are aware of Firefox or Opera might like it if they try it. Not to mention, for those using Internet Explorer, it's a very familiar environment to work with, especially considering it's safer to use.
