I have always said I was not interested in browsing the web on my console. But with my Xbox 360 Qwerty Keyboard accessory, and the speed and ease of this new IE, wow it is nice. Great quality webpage appearance, fast and very simple to use. Every site I visit shows up on each one of my Xboxes at home too, and I didn't even have to enable any cloud settings for IE.
Pinning items to the home page is nice as well, giving you some personalization. You can pin websites, games, movies, videos...any media that the Xbox supports. You can also rearrange them.
The dashboard is faster, and it is a much clearer display. The metro boxes popout with a new quality feel, not so flat. The layout is much improved as well.
I wasn't aware that you could rename your Xbox though until I saw the video above. I am so glad they did that. Now I know which Xbox is which from my computer.
What are your thoughts so far, and what other hidden features have you found?
I have not checked out the Xbox Music service yet though.

First Look Fall 2012 Xbox LIVE Dashboard Update Preview
Sorry I just absolutely hate these dashboards.. they just worse and worse in terms of look and functionality. It takes too long to get to anywhere important and its mostly ads. So much dislike :/
I suppose pinning stuff is a step in the right direction but I just hate it passionately haha.

Not everyone will have the same taste
I am glad mine isn't mostly ads. That would piss me off. I only have one ad on mine, and it's a little square in the corner.
Obviously not everyone has the same taste this is just me voicing mine.
And my xbox is full of ads all the time I've swapped it to auto disk start because I just don't want to deal with the interface anymore

So far so good. I like what they did. The boxes look smaller but better.
I don't see all of these ads either. There are some small ones but they are in no way obtrusive and unless you're on the lookout for them, they can be easily overlooked.I don't need no stinkin' signature!

It looks even better... Definitely faster too. Like it so far.
Nothing new here.Sent from my computer using keyboard.
I think MS has released another security update. I just logged on to live and it downloaded a rather large update. Anyone else get it?
My cable internet is down right now so I can barely get online, XBL will have to wait until Monday.
It looks better i like it so far and the browser is nice
Got the dashboard update today. No idea what its all about though
I didn't get the update still, is there a way to update manually ?
Got the dash this morning. They must have rolled the beta out to more regions. On the xbox right now posting this.
Yeah, it was announced a few days ago I think, that more would be granted.
I got it 3 days ago and got in. It was much better and surprised Internet Explorer goes fast and neat. I like pin idea.
