    Not sure if this means it will search the internet or not. If you go to thelink there's a place you can ask questions from people that own it.

    No streaming device has a full-blown web browser. You have to have a computer for that. The device KomputerKid linked to does not have a web browser.

    Many TVs now sold have web browsers built in. It may be limited though.

    They'll be very limited. For example, you won't be able to stream TV shows through a browser on a TV the way you can on a computer. The networks locked that functionality down.

    There's no streaming device with a full browser. Smart TV's don't have that functionality either. Or maybe KomputerKid is aware of a model I haven't seen before.
