Kylo The Browser For Your TV is Now Open Source

I bet you have never heard of Kylo?

Kylo is a Mozilla (Firefox) based web browser that has been specifically developed for TV screens (home theater). Kylo gives you the ability to browse the web on your HDTV from the comfort of your couch.

Kylo is a web browser developed by Hillcrest Labs for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. Initially released in 2010, the Kylo web browser features a 10-foot user interface, with large fonts and buttons that make it easy to see from across the room, making it especially suitable for use with a HTPC (Home theater PC) connected directly to a high-definition television.


The cool here with Kylo is that it is now open source, meaning it is being made available to developers (throughout the world) to play with… Even though it was developed for big screen TV, I downloaded it to my PC and was very impressed. Kylo auto resized itself to fit my screen and  I soon found Kylo to contain a great selection of media content (by default).  You are not just limited to media content and are able to browse the internet as you would with any other browser.  It actually gave the illusion (on my 23” monitor) of a big screen…  Kylo also features a popup keyboard that gives you the ability to go to mouse only browsing.

If you are looking for a really cool way to browse online media, then give Kylo a try. With Kylo going open source, I can’t wait to see what other builds we will see come out of this.

Note:  There are many ways to connect your PC to your HDTV.  [CLICK HERE] to learn how.
