The “final” Opera browser was released for the Wii yesterday, and after using it I have mixed feelings. They added and fixed a few things that must be noted:
- better interface
- more responsive button clicks
- better performance
As it stands right now, the improved performance of Flash 7 content, as well as the much more responsive (A) button will add greatly to already existing Games and content, but without support for Flash 8, it looks like Wii/Browser games will remain a curious and interesting area of development, but not the ideal playground that it could have been.
