My Chrome browser version is so old  by now that it doesn't work well with many sites.. I don't see how I can update it, but I'm positive there must be a way. 

Any tips? 

How do I update my firmware as well?

Unfortunately webOS does not run the Chrome browser, websites may misinform you that it is but what they are actually detecting is that the browser is built on WebKit.  WebKit is underlining architecture of many browsers, it is being misdirected as many websites do not yet support Smart TV browsers.  If your TV is running the latest firmware there is no way to update just the browser, the only thing I am afraid you can do is contact any website that does not work and make a constructive complaint about supporting Smart TVs.

      Hi everyone,
       
      I just bought a new LG television for a lobby in the company.
      It's a 55" LG Smart TV with WebOS.
       
      This tv is to show the narrowcasting system. But after a few hours the tv gets in to something like a screensaver.
      The narrowcasting is playing with the webbrowser from the installed apps.
       
      Does anyone knows how to get the screensaver off?
       
      Thankyou very much:)

      Hi, I have a web app running on a webos 2018 TV. It is enhanced with aria-labels and such so that a screen reader should synthesize speech from the focused elements. I have turned on voice assistance of course. On another well known platform I have speech, but on this system it is silent. I know I can make it speak using webos API, but for now I'm looking for this screen reader approach. Is there anything I can do to enable it?

      Hi everyone,
       
      Has any of you updated OTA or manually to the latest webOS 2.0 firmware? It was released on June 13th in Europe and it is ver. 4.05.01! 
      Any new features or performance improvements?

      My TV LG 43LX761H model goes blank screen with screensaver after 1 hour while it is on web browser. 
      Anyone have any solution for this? I tried to update firmware but the software is not available in any of the LG TV Support Sites.
      Thank you.
