Hillcrest Labs introduces the Kylo Web Browser optimized for TVs at DEMO 2010. Developed for the millions of households that connect their PCs or Macs to the TV, Kylo lets you visit any site on the Web with a browser that was specifically designed to be viewed from a distance in the family room, living room, or dorm room.
The Kylo browser is not meant to replace traditional browsers such as Internet Explorer, Safari, or Firefox for use with standard computer display screens, but instead is for use on a television connected to a computer. Unlike other applications or Web sites, Kylo is not a "walled garden" of aggregated video content, but rather a true Web browser that lets users go where they want across the Internet.

Key features of the Kylo Web browser for TV include:
-- the ability to visit any site on the Web;
-- an onscreen keyboard that appears when there is a need to enter text, eliminating the need for a physical keyboard; compatibility with any physical keyboard for users who prefer to use one;
-- Fonts, cursor, and onscreen targets are larger than those in traditional browsers;
-- easy zooming and panning;
-- the maximization of useful viewing space by hiding or removing toolbars, tabs, buttons and indicators;
-- works with any mouse, but ideal for use with an in-air mouse such as the Loop pointer;
-- easy bookmarking;
-- a directory of links to dozens of popular Web sites;
-- a Mozilla-based design, and
-- free, easy download and setup.
The Kylo browser is available for free via download here.
