    Like it doesn't have HTML, yet I've seen screenshots where it looks amazing.

    Everything is in a column and jumbled up.

    I think I'm missing a plugin, what's the problem here?

    Probably that the screenshots come from 2006 when everything was still on HTML4 (the Browser was made with that in mind), while now in 2014 every site out there is using HTML5 which the Wii Browser doesn't and won't ever support.

    Haven't used it in ages, but yeah, probably.

    Looks like crap but it's useful in some ways. I like that I can download files to a targeted directory on the SD or USB. Makes it easy to update
    homebrew apps when i don't feel like getting off the couch.

    Could we bring it up to work for HTML5?

    Would be nice to see a decent web browser for the original Wii
