    "Unauthorized programs automatically install with it!"

    March 27, 2013  |   By mizmyka

    Version: MCEBrowser 2.2

    Pros

    I don't know any because I was so frustrated with the shady software they included that I uninstalled immediately.

    Cons

    At least 4 additional programs were hidden in this download:
    Pokki
    MixDJ toolbar
    Strong Vault
    Carbon

    How do companies expect people to trust them when they are shady and misleading about what they are providing in their downloadable files?

    Summary

    I was downloading this to have a browser on my xbox and it added 4 additional programs. I can't stand it when they try and sneak extra software in like that. My security suite immediately recognized the files as potential threats and quarantined them. Not cool being sneaky like that! UNINSTALL!!

    "I was Hoping for more."

    September 25, 2011  |   By davchrtra

    Version: MCEBrowser 2.2

    Pros

    Easy enough to get on XBox. Easy to use.

    Cons

    None of the British programming is available here. Hulu was mostly old "b" class programming. It took a long time for the programming to "load/acquire" the first time.

    Summary

    I'd love it if I lived in Britain.

    "Doesn't work with Win7 (ended up using Kylo.tv)"

    June 6, 2011  |   By dr_csci

    Version: MCEBrowser 2.2

    Pros

    Simple, small download that works on Windows XP/IE 6

    Cons

    Does not allow text entry under Windows 7 (and some versions of Windows Vista)

    Summary

    Doesn't work with Windows 7 (and some versions of Windows Vista) because it relies on older versions of Media Center controls that no longer exist. Although the idea of using the current internet explorer browser is good, the program has not been updated in the last few years to work with changes to both Media Center and Internet Explorer. I ended up uninstalling this and using Kylo instead (http://kylo.tv/) which contains a full mozilla-based browser and is therefore a much larger download.

    "Great to have a browser for the 360!"

    February 4, 2011  |   By rgrms765

    Version: MCEBrowser 2.2

    Pros

    It's a browser for the XBOX!

    Cons

    Can't browse as fast as compared to using a mouse, which is understandable. Does it support Java sites?

    Summary

    It's a browser for the XboX(!), though limited with its browsing capabilities. Can be improved a lot, but I guess it's good as gold when you don't have a lot of options for browsing on a console.

    "It doesn't work..."

    January 6, 2011  |   By POL080

    Version: MCEBrowser 2.2

    Pros

    None at all

    Cons

    Doesn't work at all. It freezes up the Xbox.

    Summary

    This would be an awesome thing to have on the Xbox if it actually worked. I removed & redownload this program twice, still didn't work. I keep going into Windows Media on Xbox & it freezes up. Tried moving really fast to online media browser & after I click the media browser, the connection freezes/terminates/disconnect. This program probably needs to be updated to 2010-2011 b/c this version has been out since 2006!

    "painful to use"

    December 30, 2010  |   By hardcastlej

    Version: MCEBrowser 2.2

    Pros

    none that spring to mind

    Cons

    Painful to use, even with a keyboard. Half the web doesn't work properly.

    how do i uninstall this crap?

    Summary

    Just doesn't do its job. Its only streaming web to Xbox so should be easy (HDTV works perfectly fine over wifi...). Pocket Cloud on my android phone is much faster & miles easier, & that controls the WHOLE PC remotely.

    Abysmal effort.

    Don't bother until its been fixed or find an alternative

    "This product is excellent for watching and finding web video including HULU."

    May 1, 2008  |   By prtp3warrior

    Version: MCEBrowser 2.2

    Pros

    It is very easy to install and use. It is not buggy. Integrates effortlessly with Media Center. Has an intuitive interface.

    Cons

    In the URL bar I could not paste URLs which was annoying. ABC.com streaming video does not seem to work in this browser. I will continue to try however.
