I personally dislike using a browser on my Myth box for anything. I do
have a wireless keyboard/mouses setup, but I prefer not to keep it out.
Also, web pages are not designed for viewing on a TV screen, and
bumping up the font sizes is really just an ugly kludge. For something
like this ever to get significant acceptance & usage, I'd think it
would have to be a 'traditional' Myth set-top interface. I know I'd
find it useful.
Just my $0.02.
