An anonymous reader writes "The folks at Warp Pipe have developed a simple yet useful tabbed browsing interface for the Wii with del.icio.us bookmark integration which makes browsing on the Wii more efficient until the fully realized Opera build hits later next year. The web application does not require registration, this video overviews the interface and feature set in this early release."

    If you set your user-agent to that of the Wii Opera (Opera/9.00 (Nintendo Wii; U; 1309-9; en)), you can actually go to the website and try it out for yourself in just about any browser. In Firefox, it works exactly that way - the bar doesn't stay on screen. I guess it's not just an Opera quirk.

    You have to quit the game to get to the browser.

    Its software. Generally on a console you want the game to have full access to all the memory on the machine. Having things like an OS, built in UI, etc. will take away from that sort of thing. On the 360 there is a chunk of ram you don't have access to that the OS holds on to for its deal, and on the PS3 you allocate the space yourself for the various system UI widgets. On the Wii if they made the browser launchable with a system call and you had enough memory you could technically free up space and launch the game. Remember, none of these systems have any sort of memory paging, so if that browser goes over the limit then you're toast, and there's definately no where to put your game's memory once the browser kicks in.
