Opera Browser to be Included in Wii

Opera Software said Wednesday that the Nintendo Wii will use a customized version of its browser within the console, allowing gamers to browse the Web between games. Opera in February had announced a similar deal for the Nintendo DS. Users will be able to navigate the Web through the Wii Remote, Opera said.

"For our Wii console launch in 2006, we required a browser that was fast and secure with support for the latest standards including AJAX. Opera proved perfect for our purposes and is an exceptional addition to both the Nintendo DS and the Wii console," Nintendo's senior managing director Genyo Takeda said in a statement.
