When using Kodi, sometimes we need to browse certain content from web pages. But it wouldn’t be always convenient for users to close Kodi app and open a browser app on their device. Browsing web from Kodi doesn’t have to be that complicated, if only you adopt right web browser addons on Kodi.

Since Kodi is merely a media player app rather than an operating system, one can’t install a web browser app on Kodi like what you can do with your Windows PC or Fire Stick. For viewing webpages from Kodi, some dedicated people have done tremendous works and developed two practical addons: Web Viewer and Chrome Launcher which are arguably the only available ones in 2020.

In the following two tutorials, I’ll step by step show you how to install these two web browser addons, working in 2020.

Part 1. Browse Web with Web Viewer

Web Viewer is a linear text web browser on Kodi, it doesn’t render pages, it filters them and displays text in the order it’s found in the original HTML.

You can use it to implement basic text interactions on websites, like Real-Debrid authorization or All-Debrid authorization.

Step 6. Scroll down and click on Web Viewer.

To browse web with Web View, launch Web Viewer from Program add-ons, and a web browser interface will pop up in Kodi. Move the cursor over URL box and click on it, type in the URL of the webpage you like to visit, click OK from the lower-right side.

Click the cross icon from the upper-right side to close Web Viewer anytime you want.
