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

40¨, crisp cleartype, super contrast. much better than ps3 browser by far. glad i biought black chatpad a while ago wth 12 month gold for $40. fabulous, not necessarily better than a pc. thats really just talking about my samsung tv.


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.

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. ;)

Perhaps. This thread could get long if we go down that path. ;>

Yes ... the XBox360 version of Internet Explorer does indeed require a Gold level membership on XBox Live.

@1080p, yes that's an area that needs optimization.
