Remote setup for web video on TV?

Best setup for watching web video on TV? I currently have a PS3 which I occasionally use to watch Youtube etc via the TV. I'd like to do this more (especially longer videos) but using the PS3 is annoying for this, and I'd like some way to set up the videos on a laptop or tablet and send them wirelessly to the TV. What are my options?

A few more details that may be helpful:
- to clarify about the annoyances: using the PS3 browser via the TV is not a good experience: the browser doesn't seem very functional compared to Firefox, and the PS3 controller + distant screen isn't a good UI for setting up. I want to make this process easier.
- the solution doesn't have to be easy to set up initially - I'm happy to configure hardware and software; but it does have to be easy to use.
- I would consider a solution that involved changing the TV if that would make things easier, but I'd prefer to keep the existing set if possible - I have plenty of spare inputs.
- I'd prefer not to use Apple, but I'm open to persuasion.
