Xbox IE having problems after yesterdays update RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • After the update yesterday, the offscreen render issues on Xbox IE were exacerbated substantially. Several time this morning IE "froze" onto the already-rendered sections of the page, so when a user scrolls up or down to read the rest of the page, there is nothing but white screen. This resulted in me having to bring up the on screen menu and manually reset pages just to read the article, often several times per article. For you to realize your dream of a grand unified Xbox media center, a polished browser will be absolutely essential.

    Also, unless you buy a $30-$40 controller accessory, typing more than a small url is absolutely painful. This brief post would have taken nearly an hour to compose with IE's current typing capabilities. Thats not exaggerating in the slightest. The existing Xbox Live D-Pad typing interface is great, it seems like you could have easily integrated it into Xbox IE for a decent typing experience. We should not have to buy an expensive controller attachment just to be able to practically type on an internet browser. 

    I know console browsers arent the same as desktop browsers, I don't expect an IE10-quality experience on my console. But your latest update actually introduced more flaws, and your decision to exclude simple, existing D-Pad typing capabilities means typing on your browser isn't practical. If you could kindly pass this on to the people at Xbox IE, it would be appreciated. User input is critical here.
