Kylo web browser for TV turned Open Source overnight

There’s been a relatively large announcement made by Hillcrest Labs tonight in that they’ve turned their own “Kylo Web Browser for TV” over to the Open Source community. This announcement sets the Mozilla-based TV browser up for open-sourced management for its many features, features such as its ability to work with Mac OS and Windows machines and its ability to work with Freespace-enabled in-air pointing controls. This release will be done with Mozilla Public License (MPL) 2.0 “to enable developers to create new and different versions that extend its features and enables new uses.”
