LG's smart TVs allow users to add shortcuts to their favorite sites in the app menu. The native web browser function of the TV is ideal for quickly accessing news pages, social networks and Google search. Available on devices with a webOS operating system, the feature is an alternative to avoid the time-consuming process of entering a URL using the system's virtual keyboard by the buttons on the television remote control.
