    This could be quite useful. If it could have Window or tab support it would be very much so.

    it has nothing yet, it's just what the dev would like to implement, does not mean he is able to do it ...

    from looking at the code, basically it's just copypasted (unmodified) libwiigui template code and some http code from wplaat, it's not able to display or download or connect to anything atm so it is still very very far from a web browser
    it seems like the developper started this project to learn coding on the wii so I won't expect very much if I were you ;-)

    steelslasher one of the dev said that the project is on hold at least the svn is. they are developing a renderer separately to speedup the dev process. for flash they'll use gnash he said.

    Bit of a confusing name

    We already have Wiixplorer, the file browser from dimok

    As stated though, this project is headed no where fast. it'd be awesome if it did. But i'll go make a googlecode page saying I'm creating a PS3 emulator for Wii with code that doesn't work and we can all just hold our breath.

    Yep, exploremii name fits well with Wii, WiiXplorer in other hand sound like those lame Xtreme ''insert-X'' names, something that I would chose by a 360 app instead.

    Wouldnt it be a much better idea to just do this like MPlayer does it, run a lightweight webbrowser in a lightweight linux..

    Haha, that's pretty clever. Now if only we could just get addons for this now [​IMG].
