I was initially super excited when Amazon announced the original Echo Show, thinking it would make an awesome kitchen counter top Controller for my smart home. I had visions of using actiontiles on it to control my house. That dream was quickly diffused when it became clear that the original Echo Show would not have browser capabilities.
But, amazon has allegedly corrected that mistake with the 2nd Gen Echo Show. The new Echo Show will have two browser options (Amazon Silk and Firefox)
Not to mention the Show has its own smart home hub platform to control zigbee connected devices.
