Hillcrest Labs launches new Web browser for TVs

According to CED Magazine, Hillcrest Labs announced that it has launched a new Web browser for viewing Internet videos on your television. Working with both PCs and Macs that are physically connected to TVs, the Kylo Web browser let consumers visit Web sites of their choosing. This development lets viewers watch Internet content on their TVs from a distance in living rooms or family rooms.

Since viewers can access all types of over-the-top services that are available on the Internet, the Kylo is more of an open approach than “walled gardens” that keep customers in designated areas of the Internet.

While Hillcrest is offering the Kylo for free, the company is hoping it will drive sales of its Loop in-air mouse, which can be used as a remote control, that retails for $99, although Kylo works with a standard mouse.
