    Has they been any word on a homebrew Internet Browser for the wii?

    We can safely say Opera isn't going to update the browser for a looooooong time.

    I'd like to see Chrome ported, I don't know anything about wii homebrew but I'm guessing Chrome being open source would help.

    but it doesn't matter, I just want a browser with tabs.

    hehe both actually are =)

    Problem is to get them run proper on the Wii, else it should be quiet easy to make a browser ported.

    Yeah, Chrome on Wii would be great. It's my main browser now.

    and again, everyone avoided the main question on the topic.
