Internet Explorer "Microsoft is currently testing a modified version of Internet Explorer 9 on its Xbox 360 console, according to our sources. The Xbox 360 currently includes Bing voice search, but it's limited to media results. Microsoft's new Internet Explorer browser for Xbox will expand on this functionality to open up a full browser for the console. We are told that the browser will let Xbox users surf all parts of the web straight from their living rooms." So, when did browsing on your TV turn into something that isn't useless?

I was browsing the internet on my Dreamcast back when it was out. Dial up connection, and it was low res (though websites were designed for lower resolutions at the time), and Flash player was a few versions behind, but it worked. I could even use the light gun to move the cursor and try to "shoot" links to follow them! Good times, especially since it meant I could browse the internet in my room without another family member asking to use the computer.
