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?

When I got my 50" plasma recently

I browse on my TV now, but I do have an Acer Revo 3700 attached to a 1920x1080 50" plasma with Firefox set to 24 point size. Works well with the wireless keyboard/mouse that comes with the Revo, though it's a shame the BBC News site sets its line height at 24 pixels when you use a 24-point font - duh! Just installed XBMC too for video/music playback in a gorgeous interface.

The plasma is a Panasonic Viera Smart TV, so I've wired that up too - gets me iPlayer, BBC News (inc. video), YouTube, AP News, weather forecast, Eurosport News, Viewster (bad/old movies with ads) and some games - all for free and work nicely with the Panasonic remote.
