The networking capabilities of the Wii are slowly falling into place. The Opera browser specially designed for the Nintendo Wii has been released in public beta. You can now download the browser for free (because it’s beta), and later it will cost you some Wii points. Opera seems to be making some excellent business decisions lately, with removing the cost of the browser and the adaptation of the mobile version of the browser. Firefox is still taking market share away from Internet Explorer, but Opera users seem to be different than Firefox users. Opera has focuses more on the social networking aspect of the browser rather than the way that Mozilla has gone with Firefox: extensions. Opera is doing better, but more will be needed to remove Firefox from millions of users desktops.
