Kinect-controlled Internet Explorer coming to Xbox 360 Microsoft finally bringing full browser to console.
The Verge cites sources who inform it that Microsoft is working on a version of Internet Explorer 9 for the Xbox 360 console. The full browser lets Xbox 360 users finally surf the web using the console, which is a feature that has been a long time coming.

According to the sources, Microsoft has integrated Kinect voice and gesture control to the browser, although you won't need to have Kinect to use the browser.

There is no indication of when Microsoft is planning to deliver the new browser to Xbox consoles, but E3 is approaching again so it could be officially confirmed very soon.

I still cannot comprehend why there was never a browser for the system in the first place.

For the same reason when Sony finally came to their senses,get rid of the gimmicky bloated garbage & concentrate on what the unit was made for "video games" & lets face it do "YOU" really need another console with a web browser. re:your sig,i can't view the pics i've run out of bb width so loading will take too long however i assume the ps2 has one,christ! dialup speed is frak'n painfull i'd forgotten how slow it was,no matter only anther 3 days till reset yippee
