the biggest problem is the resolution is only 640x480, most websites are nearly twice that width, meaning a lot of sideways scrolling

Does PSO work online on the Wii since it's online it self?

Dunno, my Gamecube games are NTSC and my Wii is PAL so cannot try.

However, I'm sure SEGA pulled the plug on the PSO Gamecube servers aaaages ago now! :(

They are using Opera which was deigned to handle small screens like mobile phones. It uses zooming so you can see the whole page on one screen, here's a demo from Nintendo's site:

I'm a web designer by trade and I bought a Wii so I could check that all my sites work correctly. That's what I'm telling my accountant when he questions why my company bought a Wii!!

We'll have to wait and see exactly what content we can view on the Opera Browser, but they have confirmed Flash compatibility, so sites like CBeebies will be great for kids on it.

I tried a USB keyboard and it doesn't work.

I rekon they will do one that plugs into the Wiimote like the pads.
What would be even better is if they allowed people to use bluetooth keyboards, like Apple ones. Totally wireless like the remote.

So when does web browsing actually start?

Only got my Wii today and not connected it up yet.
