Google Earth on the Wii would be nice :-)
I know they have the Weather Globe thing but Google has good quality photos, and imagine controling the World with the Wii-mote!
On the other hand, I woudn't like adverts on a Games console (apart from when surfing the web whe you get them anyway).

WiiConnect24 is a thing on the Wii that keeps the Wii constantly connected to the Internet if you have a wireless network or a cable from a broadband socket to the Wii, so there are ways of doing it, you might just need a long cable :)

I might actually be thinking of Wii Browser.... I think that's going to be some kind of charge after a certain amount of time.

Might be getting mixed up :) Either way, they said something was going to be free when it wasnt.

Yeah, I think if you want the browser for free you have to download it before June. I'm just hoping I get my Wii before then :-) Hope this means I won't have to pay for the WiiConnect24 service then!
