For years now, Roku owners have been wanting a web browser especially with Amazon now offering an official web browser. Now thanks to the developer Endangered Screens, Roku owners have the option to surf the web on their Roku. Now this is not an official Roku-made web browser, but it is a real browser that works on Roku Players and Roku TVs if you are willing to pay $4.99 a month.
Here is how the Web Browser X Roku Channel is described:
Web Browser X is the best way to surf the web on Roku. Relax and enjoy your favorite sites from news, sports, finance, and much more. Using Google, you can search your favorite sites and images. Web Browser X lets you save your homepage and makes surfing the web easy!
You can download the Web Browser X Roku Channel to your Roku Player or Roku TV HERE.
The Web Browser X Roku Channel seems to work best on newer Roku players and Roku TVs. Overall, it is a great option for putting a web page on your TV but using the official Roku Channel for YouTube, for example, will give a far better experience.
Hopefully, this means we will soon get other web browser options from Roku or third party developers. Have you tested out the Web Browser X Roku Channel? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think of this new Roku Channel.
