With all the flack Nintendo took from parents when they found out that kids could get to porn sites on the Wii, it is safe to assume the new release has more parental controls. The new Internet Channel also has a new living room activity for families to use for doing things like researching for school projects and allows the use of multiple remotes to point out items on a page.Other new features introduced today include a new type of zoom, more scrolling options, increased simplicity and ease-of-use along with the ability to turn the toolbar off. The new browser version is a free download until June 30, 2007 and once you download it is free for the lifetime of the system. This implies that after June 30th there will be a cost to download the new Internet Channel. Via Opera and Nintendo
