    Well if its quicktime that would mean .mov streams. Im sure nintendo would have announced if quicktime was involved. maybe its nintendo's own streaming software working with opera. I wonder if we will be allowed to watch streams through windows media player in opera. Possibly like a plugin that we can install afterwards. i have a felling that if we want to see extra content we might have to puchase seperate plugins for the browser... just a speculation. :scared:

    :crazy: :shocked: wow your clever JVIPER82 how did you figure that one out.
    Its good to have the nintendo wii as a good gaming console and at the same time what you would expect from a internet browser so lazy people like me can sit down and do everything on wii and not to leave the living room ... browsing internet or listening to music online on a big tv is way nicer than monitor. :cool:

    Just downloaded Opera 9 for my P.C. to see how it runs etc. I love it, its seems to be faster than IE on my P.C. and I love the tab system on the top rather than opening a new window when you go to a link etc. I think it may even look a bit better than IE to. Think I might use it all the time.

    Firefox ftw. ;)
    I really hope the wii supports a USB keyboard... there's no way I'll be scrolling around with the cursor over a screen of characters typeing my URLs, that's riddiculas...

    Thinking about it, Nintendo could allow users to download things like games, videos, etc. by giving users free or cheap online storage. Since Wii only has 512MB of storage, it wouldn't be possible to save any large files, so online storage would be nice, although I don't know if it would be slow playing a 100MB+ quicktime video.

    If nintendo do that that would be awsome. possibly game trailes before we consider buying them. Even of they let us play demos before buying that would be nice.

    Just so ya know, IE isn't lacking in tabbed windows IE 7 has a tab system and it is much smoother in loading than previous versions and Opera as well...
