Internet Explorer 9 rumored to arrive on Kinect
With all of the new media apps available on Xbox Live nowadays, it seems the only thing missing is a web browser. According to a new rumor that may change. An unnamed source claims a modified version of Internet Explorer 9 is being tested on Xbox 360 consoles and will allow access to all parts of the Internet. The existing Bing Search will be expanded from media searches to actual web pages. As a bonus, the browser will work with both controller and Kinect, although it is reportedly better-fitted for Kinect with gestures and voice commands. There’s no word of any launch date, but if this rumor proves true we’d expect to see it at E3 next month. Xbox 360 is currently the only current-gen console without a web browser, so it will be an extremely welcome addition.
