First look: Kylo Media Browser

Macworld - Hillcrest Labs, known for its $100 Loop pointer—a four-button-plus-scroll-wheel wireless input device—has announced the release of its free Kylo browser. Based on Mozilla, Kylo is a Mac- and Windows-compatible streaming-media browser intended for the big screen—specifically HDTVs attached to a computer. Unlike media center applications such as Boxee, Plex, and XBMC—which play local as well as Web content—Kylo is solely for playing content delivered over the Internet.

Kylo is a living and breathing Web browser. You’re welcome to enter any Web address into the browser’s Address field—enter  and you’ll be taken to this site, for example. But Kylo is designed so that you’ll rarely have to enter text to visit your favorite media sites. On the Home screen you find 128 large buttons that, when clicked, lead you to such popular media sites as YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Video, Pandora, ESPN, NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox. You can see subsets of these buttons by choosing specific kinds of media from a series of tabs at the top of the screen. You can select All, TV, Movies, Music, News, Sports, Games, Original, Social, or Learning.
