Best Roku Browsers

Web Browser X

Web Browser X is one of the most popular browsers that one can use on Roku. We have ranked this browser at the top of the list because of the easy-to-use interface. The web browser is best if you want to browser sites on it and bookmark the web pages. Navigating websites with the help of this browser is quite easier. However, when it comes to using streaming content on Youtube or any other platform, it might not handle that quite well. You cannot use this browser to stream media content, and also it cannot fill up forms.

The browser struggles to render highly complex pages, so you should not prefer doing so. Though the browser may be easy to use, when it comes to the design of the interface, this is where it lacks. The design of the browser is pretty old, and it might look like you have installed a browser from the early 90s on your Roku. Fonts, design, and every other element on the browser look old.

POPRISM Web Browser

POPRISM Web Browser

Another browser that we have on the list is POPRISM. There are only a few browsers that you will find for Roku, and one of them is POPRISM. POPRISM can only be used to read text, and it cannot do anything except that. It cannot render GUI, so you cannot do anything else on the browser. There are no GUIs, no images, no JavaScript, and no CSS.

Whenever you visit any site on the browser, you will only see texts and links. There won’t be any videos or images displaying on the sites you visit. If you only want to read forums, news, RSS feed, or any other text information, you can prefer using this browser, or it won’t be of any use.

Media Browser

Media Browser is another browser supported by Roku. Unlike the other two browsers mentioned above, you will not get this browser on the Roku Store, and you will have to download and install it separately. This browser allows you to browse the internet without any browser. The best thing about this browser is that you can even browser content-heavy websites without the browser crashing.
