I'm typing this message from the Wii! The site looks pretty good on the Wii, but you don't get the sweet text editor for your posts, like you do in Firefox or IE. I expected that. The other thing that's different is the fonts for menu items and headlines are Arial and not Courier. But everything seems to look and function great, other than those 2 minor details!

Maybe I'll make some fonts a bit bigger. Like for links. I'll have to use this for a bit...

OK, so some more things that I've noticed about the Opera browser:

  • It plays You Tube videos
  • It plays most JavaScript stuff, including that "Web 2.0" AJAX stuff that I have on the System pages.
  • It won't display PDF files.
  • It won't work with popcap.com (boo!).
  • The Zoom In / Zoom Out tends to go too far.
  • It's FAST. I'm really impressed with the speed.
  • The "predictive text" engine is really nice when typing.  So, if I type "a", I can pick "and" right away, and that goes into some really long words.  "Typing" on the screen isn't nearly as painful as it could be.
  • Links are really kind of hard to aim at on all sites I visited.
  • On my big screen, text was relatively readable.  I need to try my regular set.
