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.
