The possibilities for the future of the new Apple TV 4 seem quite hopeful and that is that a new video on YouTube shows us a hacking of tvOS, the Apple TV operating system, in which they have managed to install a browser adapted as a native application. This app uses a private API to render the web content so not likely that we can see it in the short term in the App Store.

However, the project is based on open source that can be downloaded by anyone and developed the first browser designed for the new Apple TV has been published. The application uses a private API to render the web content, so it is not likely that we will see it in the App Store anytime soon, but the project is open source and can be downloaded by anyone in case they can contribute more to the development of it.

Incluso tal y como podréis ver en el vídeo, si pulsamos sobre el mando en la superficie de cristal, podremos cambiar del touchpad mode to a mode with the cursor and thus move in the way that is most comfortable for us.

The first mode allows the user to scroll with a quick movement as a touchpad as mentioned, while the other mode shows a cursor that can be move freely around the screen. Once the cursor is visible, pressing the glass surface again will click any link as if it were a mouse.

The browser is very minimalistic, it loads the pages quickly and it seems to work quite well. For quick navigation could be very useful. Unfortunately, as we noted above, it is not likely to be officially released as it requires access to a private API to function.

Anyway to see how it has been achieved create app folders, make games work through emulator and now this browser makes the future for this device is more than good.
