Web Browser Update Required on all WebOS TVs

Recommended Posts



Hi Deepak,

In regards to Google.com if you are referring to "We have detected you are running an older version of Chrome" this is because the website is not detecting the browser correctly, but it is identifying that it is based on WebKit, which is is as is Chrome, Safari the upcoming Internet Explorer et al.  Because sometimes Google, although doing its best not to be evil, does get some things wrong.

Expectations vs reality... Chromium would need to be entirely recompiled for webOS and its memory requirements I would think exceed what is available in a TV.  Smart TVs can be seen as a TV with a little bit of computing power, not a lot of computer with a little bit of a TV.
