Some of them have browsers, although they're really difficult to browse with a remote, and they sometimes have major limitations that keep you from watchin web videos.
Of course, you can plug a laptop into an HDTV.

Some HDTVs can make use of USB mice and keyboards, which makes browsing much easier. My dad's Samsung was able to use a Dell wireless mouse & keyboard that both used the same wireless dongle. It certainly was not nearly a fast as browsing with a computer (both in terms of loading pages but also in terms of mouse movement and keyboard responsiveness), but it works.
Good riddance PCWorld.

A wireless mouse and keyboard would be nice, too if you don't have a qwerty remote. My Smart TV is equipped with L9 dual core processor and I use chrome so I don't feel it is much slower web browsing on TV.
