    We don't have a full demo yet but its being worked on right now. We are working on a PC Application. This PC Application will be a huge homebrew repo for Wii Homebrew Apps and eventually DS (and more?). The application runs on the user's computer and a large amount of homebrew available from the front page and info on that homebrew. Users can download homebrew to their SD Card with the click of a mouse, users will even be able to keep their homebrew apps up-to-date as the application will also check for updates. In other words, a huge, smart Repository for Homebrew.

    Never heard the Homebrew Browser developer asking for money for hosting the apps and I think it's a little bit premature to buy a website/server before having anything published. I doubt you are going to have massive bandwidth need at the beginning (if ever) and there are many free solutions to store that kind of stuff online (googlecode, wordpress, etc) or you could even use direct link to official websites when possible since those are not your apps anyway.
