Microsoft to release Internet Explorer for Xbox 360
Earler today, we reported that there will be no browser choice for Windows RT user and a new rumor has just appeared in front of us which claims that Microsoft is looking forward to bring the Internet Explorer to Xbox 360.This gaming console is already internet friendly and also, owners of this gaming console can easily surf the web without Internet Explorer, then what’s the need for Microsoft to bring it’s proprietary browser to each and every Microsoft related thing.
Microsoft Xbox 360 has got everything except a real time web browser which can enhance the comfort of owners during web surfing and keeping these thing in mind Microsoft is planning to release Internet Explorer on this console.According to recent reports, insiders believe that Microsoft may release the Internet Explorer 10, well, frankly that does not make any sense as Xbox 360 is quite an old device and in the past we have already seen that Microsoft has failed in bringing IE to the previous gen Windows operating system and even recently, Microsoft has revealed that Internet Explorer 10 will be a Windows 8 exclusive and there will be no IE 10 even for Windows 7, so, seeing this history we can believe that Microsoft is not in amood of bringing very high quality IE to the gameing console, it will be bringing an ubiquitous Internet Explorer to Xbox 360.That’s not the end of the story, there are a few hurdles in front of Microsoft because Xbox 360 is a gaming console and it do not support keyboard and mouse like things, it does support the gaming controller and can anyone use the controller to surf the web? Yes, one can as the controller will provide the kinetic scrolling–one of the needed thing– during web browsing.
If we believe our sources then we find that Microsoft is planning to bring Kinetic functionality to the controller which will add gesture and voice controls to this gaming console.Well, all these functions will come to Xbox’s Live social and to bring all these things Microsoft will surely release an update.Microsoft’s proprietary search enginge–Bing–is already added to the dashboard and according to insiders after the Explorer update it’ll completely transform into a Microsoft created console.Also, there is a good news for those who may not get the Kinetic add on as Microsoft will also bring the proprietary browser to them, but the thing is that those with no Kinetic will get less than those with the Kinetic add on.Well, everyone knew that Microsoft’s browser has failed and recent stats have also shown that Chrome and Firefox are much-much popular than the Internet Explorer and there are only a few people who like the Internet Explorer, so, the company is completely stacked and thus, it’s trying to bring this web browser to each of it’s created thing.Anyway, this is just a big rumor buzzing in the industry and no one knows whether Microsoft is upto this thing or not, well, we do not about Xbox 360, it’s successor Xbox 720 will surely bring the Explorer with it, but for Xbox 720 we have to wait till 2013, let’s hope that at E3 Microsoft will surely throw some light on this topic.
