The purpose of this document is to provide an understanding of the solution which has been developed by the MeeGo TV project. It addresses the developers who will deliver a working implementation.
The internet world has created browsers for the PC. Assuming not only a mouse and a keyboard, but also 50 cm viewing with a multiple window presentation layer and a skilled human driving the beast. Unfortunately, a TV has neither a keyboard or a mouse, the vision is done from 3m, there is no windowing concept, and the Live TV presentation remains in control of the UI all the time. The TV needs a browser which address some critical issues. Controllable by an external application.
