Fullmetal5 over at gbatemp.net has released a browser exploit for Wii called FlashHax.
This is an exploit in the Wii's Internet Channel which can still be freely downloaded from the shopping channel. This exploit is entirely loaded over the internet so you don't even need an SD card for this. The goal in the future is to have a little app store where you can launch any homebrew app without having to go through the Homebrew Channel or mess around with preparing files on an SD card.
Unfortunately this doesn't work for the vWii since Nintendo doesn't allow you to download the Internet Channel on the vWii. Although if you install the channel through homebrew it should in theory work (untested tho).
Thanks goes to hitman43 for the heads up.

Despite that there are plenty of other entry points into the Wii, this is still pretty awesome! The more the merrier! Cloud based homebrew would be good for those with a broken as card reader, or for those who want to experiment with Wii homebrew without necessarily making any permanent changes to their console|
