Wii Opera web browser in action

The folks from GamerTag Radio have already gotten their hands on the Wii’s Opera browser and, as any game journalist would, decided to test it out and document it all.

One of the things that were tested was the Wii browser’s compatibility with sites such as YouTube. Despite the reports that have been gong around, saying that YouTube doesn’t work properly on this platform, the video which Godfree took shows the site working perfectly. In fact, the video seems to have also buffered faster than it would on an average desktop PC, and in full screen, too.

Godfree also noted that it is also possible to listen to podcasts via the Wii Browser, though the podcast will need to have a flash player in order for it to be streamed. Now, if only they’d incorporate tabs as well.

So, if you haven’t downloaded the browser on your Wii yet, perhaps now would be a good time to test it out and see if it’s to your liking.
