Couch Surfer is a native web browser for the Apple TV written using the WebKit rendering engine.
 
You can scroll through web pages and even interact with them! It also supports web plugins like flash
 
 
 
=Install=
 
The simplest way to install it on an SSH-enabled AppleTV ist to
 
* Get the CouchSurfer Apple TV Plugin tarball from http://www.brandon-holland.com/software.html
 
* Transfer it to the AppleTV
 
* Navigate to the place you'v copied it to:
 
cd /Users/frontrow/Documents/
 
* Extract it:
 
tar -xvzpf couchsurfer-0.6-2.x-bin.tar.gz
 
* Move the extracted plugin to the proper place
 
mv CouchSurfer.frappliance /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/PlugIns/
 
* Restart the Finder (or the AppleTV entirely)
 
kill `ps ax | grep Finder.app | grep -v grep | sed -e 's/<tt>[[</tt>:blank:]]*//' | sed -e 's/<tt>[[</tt>:blank:]].*//'`
 
 
 
=Usage=
 
After installation, you will have the new item <code>Couch Surfer</code> in the Front&nbsp;Row main menu.
 
 
 
SubMenus in version 0.3 are:
 
* Enter address
 
* Google Search
 
* Bookmarks (bases on <code>/Users//frontrow/Library/Application\ Support/CouchSurfer/Bookmarks.plist</code>)
 
* History
 
* Settings (not implemented yet)
 
* About
 
 
 
Usage with the Remote is very intuitive.
