Posted Thu May 12, 2011 at 01:40 PM PDT by Dick Ward

A lighter user interface and improved web browsing are among the improvements in the new update.

The latest update to hit the Boxee Box makes some nice improvements in just about every aspect of the device's functionality, from things like language support to new content from Wealth TV and Snag Films.

Users have been waiting for a significant browser update and they're getting it now. Boxee has improved the support for HTML 5 for sites like HBO Go, cleaned up the on-screen-display, and added things like a browsing history and bookmark support.

The company announced plenty of other changes as well, including the addition of custom artwork for media files, local file playback and an enhanced sharing system for Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
