Pressing 2 linearises the page.
Wii's website is saved as a default bookmark, but it's a really bad experience. Links are tiny and fiddly, horizontal scrolling, slow to load.
When it doesn't like a site, it will start loading it, then go straight back to the home screen without any warning or error message. Google search crashed a few times.

No rounded corners. Couldn't detect any webgl support
Flash (7.0) enabled/installed (it's a very old version of Flash and you can't update it yourself). On the flash download page, it detected the system as Macintosh. Cookies and Java reported as being enabled
Postition fixed works, but juddery. Jumps while page is scrolling.
Wii Remote, the main controller for the Wii. Has motion sensing capabilities, infrared sensors, 8 buttons, a D-pad and a speaker. It also has a slot at the bottom for attachments.
Clicking links is fiddly. Doesn't seem to invoke a hover state. Couldn't find a way to do text selection. Drag and drop tests worked (obviously no multitouch).
Remote vibrates when it hovers over a link. Pressing - and + buttons zooms.
Yep, you can surf the web on a Wii balance board.
