Heh, in what way does it look better (if that's what you're indicating)? Is there any way you could take a screenshot for us, please? :)

I was going to say stuff about IE on Xbox, but then I remembered that we've all signed an NDA. So no screenshots and no discussions sadly.

Yeah it looks good but scrolling is crap. It doesn't scroll smoothly.

I presume he meant 'It's nice being able to view Neowin on Xbox IE.' not that it looks any differently.

It looks really good at 40" with same crisp text as 27" monitor. All sites do but the Neowin redesign is particularly good looking at that size and with IE's rendering. The great scaling is a result of Neowin's design.

Agreed.

Probably the same as it does on a 1366x768 monitor, just larger.

I can't answer the question as my TVs and Monitors are all 1080p but if memory serves, there's a humongous difference in readability of text and clarity of images from 720pish to 1080p. Particularly text. What I can say is IEs rendering of fonts and everything else is pretty impressive as compared to other console browsers I've experienced.

If only text would render smoothly on the dashboard, it looks like it was rendered in 480p and blown up to 1080.

The PS3 browser is pants (though now it uses Webkit, it's bearable than its older NetFront predecessor. But not by much), so I'd hope IE on Xbox would be better :p

I'm curious as to how it handles Flash content. Pretty well I hope?

Newsflash: There is no flash. :p

Presumably you can only use IE with a gold membership?

Haven't heard anything about that. It's highly possible given their track record but I just don't know. Depends on their goal I suppose.

I never understood browsers on game consoles :/

To be honest, I probably won't actually use it with a PC. But I think there are many with consoled but no PC. And it was quite a bit easier to navigate than other consoled browsers. Of course, I have a chatpad as well which helps. Pinning favs makes it easy to reuse. Dropping things like Flash is a nuisance but I think a must on a console. Can't have weekly patches for an insecure plugin going out on consoles. Having said that, it could be coming later, it's coming to Windows 8.

You're whole post is, "That's all?" Most forums would have this thread locked...

Lol, maybe. I don't think about those things too much, but the post did start in the title as Rudy pointed out. Seriously though, it is under NDA or I would have written a lot more.

If it's under NDA you shouldn't have said anything at all. ;)
