Kylo Is a Big-Screen, TV-Optimized Web Browser

LIfeHacker.com Kylo is a Mozilla-based web browser optimized for surfing the web on your HDTV from the comfort of your couch. Check out our screenshot tour to see it in all its 10-foot display glory.

Kylo was designed to complement the nifty gyroscopic mouse—produced by Kylo’s parent company—called The Loop. While The Loop is pretty sweet and we certainly wouldn’t mind field testing one, for our testing we just used a regular old wireless keyboard and mouse hooked up to our HTPC. Kylo shines without any fancy peripherals, although it’s certainly a great ambassador for The Loop.

Kylo is optimized to be easy on your eyes and to make browsing the web from your couch as comfortable as possible. The address and toolbar are located on the bottom of the screen—looking down repeatedly towards the bottom of the screen is more eye-friendly than looking up to the top of the screen, it’s also a better spot for good contrast if the TV is mounted too high.) They tailored everything from the buttons to the visual bookmarks for fumble-free clicking when the screen is far away.
