Hi guys,

I've installed the XBMC live to HD with little to no problems, but I was wondering if there is a plugin that will let me browse the web for simple things like email or more detailed imdb browsing. If not, is it possible to install and run firefox and use it while XBMC is running in standalone mode?

I'm wondering the same thing. I'm going to build an ION htpc soon, and have XBMC live boot straight from a 4gb USB. The htpc won't have a HDD.

I don't know anything about linux, so what is the easiest way to achieve XBMC Live plus some sort of web browser?

Ought to be able to install a browser from the command line then launch it with that launcher plugin.

It's been done before with Firefox. I think there is even a how-to floating around here. Search it up.

The point of XBMCLive is to give you XBMC quickly and easily. If you want more, it's up to you to figure it out.

it always starts with self-support (see search option at the top).
