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.

It does not work. It doesn't give an XSLT error as Opera Desktop does, but the kind of rendering Mini does is equally useless. The error says that this page uses Ajax and JS and therefore it can't work on this browser.

I also tried your page with Openwave's mobile browser and that also failed in a similar way Opera Desktop did. It gave a full screen error of "unsupported content type".

Maybe you want to code your pages using more conventional methods so all browsers are compatible.

Thanks but I think it's better to wait for browsers to catch up. Dumbing down sites rips the fun right out of building them. Haven't you ever heard, "If you build it they will come."? Hey somebody has to build it.
No commercial interest and way more than a bit on the experimental side anyway, still evolving.

Well, it depends. If you build sites for your own fun, sure. But if you build sites so you can connect to as many people as possible, then no. At OSNews we use very standard tags and old-style HTML because it's in our best interest to be as compatible as possible with older and mobile browsers.
