I am sure that most of you with Nintendo Wii systems already know this, but the Opera browser is now available. You can now get to PC Perspective even easier!
Given that the Wii has a maximum resolution of 480p, on-screen text normally meant for computer monitors would be difficult to read on a standard or enhanced definition TV. To offset this, the Opera browser has 'Intelligent Zoom' technology that enlarges objects on the page with the + button. Once zoomed in, the Wii Remote allows you to pan around the page while remaining in zoom mode.
'Opera on Wii adds a new dimension and functionality to a video game console system. It is a unique Web experience that everyone can use, and the Intelligent Zoom feature allows consumers to read Web content on the TV from the comfort of their couch,' says Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America. 'Whether surfing the Web or playing a Wii game, users of all kinds will find fun, new experiences with Wii.'
