Netscape is tackling the problem of browsing the World Wide Web from a standard television set with a new initiative called TVSoft, according to sources close to the company.
TVSoft will reportedly address several problems associated with browsing the Web using a television. First, computer screen resolutions are a great deal higher than TV sets so compensation has to be made in software, through anti-aliasing outline fonts and anti-twittering technology.
Further problems arise from the size of the text on an Internet Web page which is designed to be viewed close up.
NetScape's TVSoft will tackle these problems with its Web browsing interface for Oracle's network computer specification, according to sources.
