Md. – Hillcrest Labs on Monday
introduced Kylo, a Web browser designed for video viewers who connect their
computers to their televisions. The software includes an on-screen keyboard,
and larger fonts and targets than traditional browsers. One of the most popular
sites for such applications is the video site Hulu — which has repeatedly
blocked access by Boxee, a similar application. "We are currently
investigating why Hulu videos are not playing within the Kylo browser,"
wrote Hillcrest CEO Dan Simpkins. "Prior
to our formal launch, Hulu videos would play within the Kylo browser. Like
Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari, the Kylo browser is simply a Web browser,
it’s our sincere hope that Hulu isn’t restricting access."
