The latest generation of Smart TV's run on the same operating systems as our mobile devices. How weird can these browsers be? Perhaps Smart TV's aren't as smart as we all would like to think. But there are more weird browsers. How do game console handle your websites and are e-readers really capable of browsing the web? Niels will try to give an overview of all the problems you are going to face when you want to make your site work on these weird browsers.

Niels is a developer working on web applications for Salonhub ( and is a self-professed browser geek. He is the creator of (, which is used more than a million times yearly to test how well browsers support web standards, and he runs the one of the largest Open Device Labs (!odl=1138) in Europe with almost 200 different and sometimes weird devices.
