Microsoft to bring full Internet Explorer browsing to Xbox 360

Eponymous Hero (2090636) writes "Heads up, developers, you may soon have a new browser platform variation for testing your site: IE9 on the Xbox 360. No word yet on whether it will have a unique vendor CSS prefix, seeing as it is a "modified" version of the browser. It's also still unclear how developers will be able to leverage the Kinect's features with the web browsing experience.

Microsoft may be late to the game (pun intended) as far as web browsers on the console — Playstation and Wii have offered this feature for quite some time — but with game consoles taking over the living room as entertainment centers, this may mark the first time a game console becomes a target platform for testing."

Failure #1: Pelvic thrusting page reload.
Failure #2: Squatting to make page load stop.
Failure #3: Drinking mimicry for 'toolbar install'.
Failure #4: Default search is Bing.

Success #1: Users unable to use a torrent client.

Oh goody. More lines of styling to add to the "Internet Explorer only stylesheets to make CSS render correctly in Internet Explorer". Can I gouge my eyes out now?
