They neglected to mention that the browser is faster and more responsive than the ps3's browser(hopefully be fixed with an update) - And that's quite a compliment to Opera, coz I'm not even much of an Opera fan...

That being said, I may keep browsing on the wii instead because it feels oh so much more natural with the remote. If they fix the bugs in the brower and add a few more features(like scrolling with the d-pad), this'll probably be the best console browser. I think opera managed the limited resolution just fine. I notice no flicker on the screen(I'm on 480i), and the fonts not only very readable but are very easy on the eyes as well. The only website I found any rendering mistakes was on gmail when viewing certain messages(sometimes the message got pushed down further on the page), but standard html version works ideally for the wii.
