Wii Xplore aims to bring a rich yet simplified web browsing experience where the user does not have to incorrectly spell Google. Currently, it can download any file from any URL and save it to the SD card, useless right now but saving will probably save some memory space for JavaScript and images. The HTTP Lib is based of Plaat's lib, originally I used the one created by Bushing but it sucked because it didn't support HTTP 1.1, I have modified Plaat's HTTP Lib so that it is FULLY HTTP 1.1 compliant.

The current SVN version has partial support for chunk encoding but has many other HTTP 1.1 features removed. Due to finally fixing a long term problem I feel like taking a rest.


Parses HTTP headers. Is 99% HTTP 1.1 compliant, doesn't support uneeded/unused commands. Finally can decode chunk encoding! Useable release coming soon!

Upcoming features

  • User can choose a URL
  • Gnash implementation (GNU Flash)
  • SpiderMonkey implementation
  • Something to parse HTML
  • Custom views system
    • Certain pages which do not show up right will have their own rules/template so normal browsing can be resumed
  • Auto-increase fonts (after rendering)
  • GUI
  • SSL
  • Custom made parser or the parser from the Gecko Layout Engine -> [1]

Future Plans

This project is part of the FMW (Free Mii Wii) Project which is also being run by OnSiNcH Dev. This project will hopefully lead to XBox like features.

Why am I bothering to do this?
