#REDIRECT [[Couch_Surfer]]
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 the Apple TV is to use [http://www.atvflash.com/ aTV Flash]
 
 
 
You can also install Couch Surfer on your SSH enabled Apple TV by following the steps below.
 
 
 
* Download the Couch Surfer Apple TV Plugin [http://www.atvflash.com/couchsurfer.php here]
 
* Transfer it to the AppleTV vis SSH
 
* Navigate to the place you'v copied it to:
 
cd /Users/frontrow/
 
* Extract it:
 
tar -xvzpf couchsurfer-0.6-2x.tgz
 
* Move the extracted plugin to the proper place
 
mv CouchSurfer.frappliance /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/PlugIns/
 
*Make sure it has the correct ownerships
 
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/PlugIns/CouchSurfer.frappliance
 
* 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 0.6 are:
 
* Enter address
 
* Google Search
 
* Bookmarks (bases on <code>/Users//frontrow/Library/Application\ Support/CouchSurfer/Bookmarks.plist</code>)
 
* History
 
* Settings : Show Header
 
* About
 
 
 
Usage with the Remote is very intuitive.
 
 
 
=WebKit Browser=
 
A [[WebKit Browser|webkit]] is also available for download at the same URL where you find Couch Surfer.
 
It provides:
 
JavaScriptCore.framework
 
JavaScriptGlue.framework
 
WebCore.framework
 
WebKit.framework
 
 
 
I suppose it adds JavaScript functionality to the browser. Backup the old WebKit and update the frameworks:
 
mv /System/Library/Frameworks/WebKit.framework /Users/frontrow/Documents/
 
mv webkit-525-frameworks/*.framework /System/Library/Frameworks/
 
 
 
=License=
 
By downloading, installing or otherwise using Couch Surfer, you hereby agree to the [http://www.atvflash.com/couchsurfer/CSEULA.pdf Couch Surfer EULA].
