The browser is very limited and should fail on "heavy" pages like YouTube. Try the YouTube app instead. I'd explain more but the question about the browser is one of the common ones. In short, it's nothing to be compared with your PC browser.

The web site has to support the TV.

Read;forums06#message5354305 FIRST!!!

This browser is only a browser and does not compare well with your PC. As I alluded to in my first post the biggest mistake I see here is the expectation that the browser would be on par with a PC. Not even close. If the web site is careful, it can work but since the site you noted usually issues an App then they don't work with the limited browser.

I know it may irritate the maker but don't buy Smart TVs for the browser yet.

About the KEYBOARD.

Try any USB KEYBOARD FIRST. I didn't find the model number in this discussion so I can't look into that area today. If USB KEYBOARDS work, then try one of those USB WIRELESS KEYBOARDS from LOGITECH.

Keyboard Model #
by SandyMac0930 / February 13, 2013 2:22 AM PST

I have a Samsung EH5300 and a wireless keyboard made by Logitech Model #: K400. I found it through this forum and you can buy it on for $35.00.

It only works if the TV shows a querty keyboard but I still like it and use it quite often. Just have to plug it into the usb drive on the side of the tv and it will find the keyboard.Easy... Peasy!
