We'll stop supporting this browser soon.

Question

I bought two LG SMART tvs primarily to surf the net on our tv.  I get this message on many (not all) websites: We'll stop supporting this browser soon.   For best results please update your browser. 

This proves that LG misled me by calling their tv SMART when it is not SMART at all. I can't put another browser on these tvs and I can't update the browser so I can get on these websites.

I thought false advertising was illegal.

      Hello,
      Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 
      Kind regards,

      It is now 2020, and the WebOS browser in LG Smart TVs (which I believe is Chromium-based) is still massively out of date and doesn't work properly with a ton of websites!
      The main problem is actually very simple. The browser doesn't support EMCAScript 2015 or ES6.
      Basically, translated from nerd speak, it doesn't work properly with modern code using new features created since 2015, so any newer websites will break unless they've been written to be compatible with ancient browsers and OSes.
      This should not be the case on a TV made in the current year. It should be running an up-to-date web browser, if not for convenience, then for SECURITY reasons as well!

      I am only using my LG SmartTV as a SmartTV, no traditional cable/antenna-input at all, only internet and other devices.
      But still it seems to default to expecting old fashioned TV signals, always starting up on a "dead" TV channel with no input, and always ruins the nice screensavers with a big black box saying "not programmed".
      Any idea how to get rid of this?
