Couch Surfer is a Safari browser (actually, a WebKit shell) built for AppleTV. It's one of the myriad other hacks for the AppleTV.

Original Poster:

I'm not sure if anyone here knows the details of CouchSurfer, but it's important to realize that it (and Nito, and ATVFiles, etc) are all separate projects from Boxee/XMBC. Many other projects were "broken" by ATV 2.3, and I'd guess Couch Surfer is one of them.

The main fount of knowledge about couch surfer would be the Couch Surfer wiki on AwkwardTV (http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Couch_Surfer).

That having been said, I don't use it, but maybe someone else here does and has gotten it working?
