Since its release in 2005, one feature has always been missing from the Xbox 360 — an Internet Browser. And seeing how Microsoft owns their own with Internet Explorer, the absence one such browser is a little odd. According to a recent report that’s about to change.
Website The Verge is reporting that Microsoft is currently testing a modified version of Internet Explorer 9 for the Xbox 360. This new Internet Explorer browser will expand on the 360′s current Bing voice search (which is limited to media results) by opening up a full browser for the console. Xbox owners will be able to quickly search using the existing Bing functionality. According to the site’s sources, Kinect support will not be mandatory, however the browser is said to be tuned for Kinect usage.
If true, more is sure to be revealed at E3 in June.
