Kylo is a web browser developed by Hillcrest Labs for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. Initially released in 2010, the Kylo web browser features a 10-foot user interface, with large fonts and buttons that make it easy to see from across the room, making it especially suitable for use with a HTPC (Home theater PC) connected directly to a high-definition television.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

In 2011, Kylo was a CES (Consumer Electronics Show) Innovations Awards honoree in the category of online audio/video content.[12]

On May 15, 2012, Kylo was released as open source software under the terms of the Mozilla Public License[13]
