    Someone has got to be able to port Firefox to Wii. It's far beyond my abilities, but I'm honestly surprised that this hasn't been done yet.

    Support for youtube and better compatibility for other multimedia sites. But most importantly I'd love to see a Wii browser take advantage of a USB Keyboard!

    Anyone up for the task?

    Youtube works in the Wii Opera, as do USB keyboards. Stop being greedy.

    I tried my usb keyboard. Works fine in the Wii message board, but does nothing for entering addresses or whatever in Opera... hmm.

    1. Someone on here is already working on getting the official one to do more things like newer flash and tabs.
    2. You can use one of the linux to wii ports to run Firefox as if you were on pc, you need a wired connection though as the wifi drivers aren't there yet.
