What We Can Learn From Game Console Browsers

With 19% of people in the UK accessing the internet using a game console, it’s time to look beyond desktop, mobile and tablet browsers. Browsing the internet on a game console presents us with new challenges, such as designing for the 10-foot UI, and building sites that could be interacted with using voice, gesture, a second-screen, or using a d-pad or a smart watch.

It may all sound a bit far-fetched, but considering how your site will be used by people using console browsers will not only benefit your current users, but also prepare you for the oncoming zombie-apocalypse of internet-enabled devices.

    mobile, tablet and desktop
