Opera Software Opera Mini 3.0 was released today (get it here). Major new features include camera support, RSS feed reader, SSL and https support, content folding, and speed improvements. Screenshot here. Today we also celebrate here at OSNews the first hits of the Opera-based Wii browser (via a proxy hack to allow generic web browsing) and the Sony PS3 browser. We would be grateful if you could snap a picture of your TV with your gaming console rendering OSNews and send us an email with it or post a link below.

You would have the answer if you had read my news item closely.

The current browser for the "Shop Channel" of Wii is Opera-based, but it's a wall garden. It does not allow generic web browsing. To enable this you have to setup a proxy on a Linux machine somewhere at your local network, and tell Wii to use that proxy. When the Wii is trying to connect to the Nitendo Shop Channel, you would have setup the proxy to actually serve a different page, in this case a portal page you created, or google.com. Then, via either google or your local portal page you can visit other web pages except nintendo's. There are 2-3 videos about this on YouTube showing how-to.

The full Opera browser for the Wii that will allow you to browse any page will come out in December.
