Submission + - Wii Browser Out in the US!

PWill writes: "The Wii Browser, made by Opera, was just released in the US, at roughly 0230 in the morning EST. Posting this story from it right now. I had to write the URL down, because you can't copy+paste.

I can assure you that it is released in the US, as well, though."
