The Diffusion Group recently released a new report, “Web Browsing from Top Consumer Electronics Devices: No Keyboard, No Mouse, No Problem?” In it, they found that a surprisingly large number of adult broadband users are viewing the web through nontraditional browsing devices. TDG based the study on a survey of 1500 adult broadband users to gauge their opinion of browsing from a television. They found that more than one third are already doing just that. According to the research, 10% of respondents use a smart TV browser to surf the Web, with a quarter of those using it at least once a day. TDG believes that as time goes on, consumers will use devices that are far better suited for web browsing, such as iPads and smartphones, separately and in combination with their television.
