    If anyone is interested the latest version of XBMC pimped finally has the long awaited integrated web browser - based on a much updated version of linksbox

    I've only had a quick play but it seems quite stable and sites are easily readable - tho i think in SD res it might be a bit of an eyestrain

    Its def good for a quick check on the web if you're laptop/pc is off

    From release notes:

    Finally made another linkboks version for you guys out there that have been asking for it. Right now only the PM3 skin is supported. I'm working on getting mc360 working with it. Also updated the mc360, vision and xtv skins, and added a new skin called containment.

    I use MC360 so will wait until this is done :)

    Not so sure about the PMIII comment I use Ceomr and it works fine, would try it on 360 but I can't stand it. It does work in Xtv, clearity and all the others I've tried

    Hi Guys its nice to see you have go this working...

    I have the latest version of the pimped XBMC, when I try and open the browser I get a white screen a bit of text saying sending request and a lockup!

    did you guys do a clean install, or delete some old files?

    thanks

    I managed to find Linksbox 0.99 the other day and have installed it on the Xbox.

    OK It's pretty basic and doesn't have CSS or Javascript support but it fits my needs perfectly for basic web browsing on the TV. Once you get the hang of the keys it's easy to use.

    It wasn't on the lastest XBMC Pimped so if you're after it send me a PM and I'll help you out. It's 2.5 Mb in size (zipped).

    Mod your Xbox first, then install linksbox.
