Hi,
Ive heard that there an XBrowser that will allow you to use your xbox as a web surfing thingy. Does this exist? Where can I get it if it does? Is there something else that will allow me to do this if theres no such thing as XBrower? Thanks

It's called LinksBox, check the archives here for more info:

You'll have to find out where to get it yourself, I recommend this article:

Is there any way I can surf the web just using a controller? Do I have to have a keyboard?

LinksBox can do exactly that. The keyboard is optional.

No, but normal .htm files from the HDD work just fine. Plugins wouldn't work anyway.

A good strategy would be to try all buttons on your gamepad (be sure to check out the thumbsticks too).

ps. the correct name should be LinksBoks, there are even more Google results using that.
