Xbox 360 Web Browser, Not Anytime Soon

By | April 13, 2010 | 12 Comments

Xbox 360 Web Browser, Not Anytime SoonEven though Xbox 360 rivals, such as PlayStation 3 and Wii, offer some kind of web browsing experience, Microsoft has no plans to introduce the very same for its console, anytime soon.

Aaron Greenberg, the Xbox director of product management said: “We really believe that the web browsing experience on TV is a poor one, and the real magic is to take those web experiences and optimize them for the living room. That’s what we did with Netflix. So, sure, you can go on the PS3 and go to Facebook and and try to navigate, but it’s an absolute nightmare.”

Microsoft Tweaks Browser Ballot ScreenAs ballot screen was pushed at the beginning of March, various users started noticing anomalies behind random browser order.

For some reason, it would favor Google Chrome, increasing its chances to be first, second or third in the list.

As a result, Microsoft has tweaked random order algorithm, which solved this issue. Unfortunately, no more details were provided.

“We can confirm that we made a change to the random icon order algorithm in the browser choice screen for Europe. We are confident the algorithm change will be an improvement. As always, we are grateful for the feedback we get from developers, and we thank those who commented on the topic and suggested changes,” said Microsoft’s Kevin Kutz.
