Hi,
I just bought a Vizio 32" smart TV and I was wondering if I could some how add a web browser with flash capabilities. I don't like the Yahoo based apps and I would like to be able to surf the web. Any suggestions?

Or should I take it back and get a Samsung smart TV?

You are pretty much limited to what the tv has, unless it allows you to download more apps. And finding a web browser on a smart tv with full flash capabilities is going to be pretty hard. Keep in mind, you are buying a smart tv, not a computer.

Vizio as a company and their products suck big time. But if you have one and want to use a browser to surf the Web then about the only option (05-10-2013) is to use a JAVA based browser if you can find and use one. If you have a TiVo unit then there is one available for download (search on TiVo Browser). If no TiVo then try Lobo java Web Broswer.

I'm in the same boat. I have a Vizio Co-Star on one tv and love the fact that I can access the internet and shows available there, such as Downton Abbey through PBS. I just purchased a Vizio M551d-A2 tv and was shocked that the Chrome browser wasn't included. Is there somewhere I can download that app for my TV?? Otherwise, how do I catch up on Downton Abbey??
