Thanks to a friend, I’ve managed to dig a little further into the built-in proprietary browser iTunes uses to display its iTunes Store in. The browser is usually only able to display pages from the iTunes Store site, which is supposably self-contained. However, my friend managed to find an ad in the store that opens an apple.com page. From there, it is simple enough to navigate out into the world wide web. Check the bottom of the post for screenshots from a wide variety of sites. One quick thing to add; I couldn’t get Flash working at all, and this browser seems to share cookies with Safari.
Getting iTunes to show you the internet.
1. Find an ad for Dr Dre’s White Headphones, about halfway down the page. Click on it.

2. The ad opens up a page on Apple.com. Scroll up to the top of the page, and click the “Downloads” tab.
3. You’ll want to search for some sort of Google software, like Google Earth. There’s a searchbox at the top. Type in “Google Earth”.
4. Select “Google Earth” from the results page. On the Google Earth page, scroll down until you see a link for “Google”.
5. You’ll be on the Google Earth homepage. Scroll down to the bottom, and click “Google Home”.
6. There you go! You’re on Google. Now go surf the web.
