    Hi to all. I have a couple of questions regarding GTV.

    1. Can the Chrome browser on GTV be placed on presentation mode?

    2. Can the GTV device (either the GTV itself or the external Buddy Box be accessed remotely by software such as gotomypc or pcanywhere?

    Thanks in advance for your information.

    GTV currently has a modified version of Chrome 11 and it runs some HTML5 - but it doesn't currently run HTML5 based on WebM.

    I suspect after the GTV Jellybean update (which will come with Chrome 26) WebM will be supported.

    WebM support for GTV will be very important because Google plans on switching YouTube over to their new VP9 codec (which is based on WebM).


    The HTML5 test - How well does your browser support HTML5?

    It looks like Google has things planned-out for Chrome, and better than I would have suspected.

    Wonder how this might shake-out as an advantage for Google over I.E. in general, and the XBoxOne, specifically, but it sounds good for GoogleTV users with the Jelly Bean update. This could really put the Revue into retirement.
