    PS3 internet browser question

    So my PS3's internet browser frequently freezes when i either try to start it up (the browser) or try to load a new website (like going from PS3T to facebook). Does anyone else have this problem as often as i do? is there a way to fix this without sending it to sony (withdrawals from my PS3 would be brutal )?

    I'd say just try using a real computer. The Ps3 browser is a piece of crap.

    While the browser itself is a piece of shit, you should still be able to use it for basic tasks.

    Try emptying your browser cache.

    Pretty much, yeah. The low system memory doesn't help the stability of the browser either.

    I used the PS3 browser exclusively for about a year, and I can't say I miss it one bit.

    Yeah, countless times has my PS3 frozen simply because I tried using the internet on it. It seriously is a joke. I've had my fair share of frustration with that shit

    As others have already stated, the browser is useless.

    I've never had any problems with my PS3 browser. I guess I'm a rare owner that doesn't get that many glitches and freezes as everyone else reports on getting game/browser related. My browser is not as fast as my computer but it's not as slow as your PS3 browser.

    Not only does the PS3 browser suck, but the Vita's does as well. I've tried using both when I've been too lazy to use either my laptop or my phone. BTW, my iPhone is better than the PS3/Vita browser.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!

    Sending it to Sony will do nothing. That's how it's made, and it's functioning as they designed it.

    The browser is horrible. It's not you it's how it's made. I rarely use it, go for a pc. Besides all I wanted to use it for before was watching youtube and now with the killer app they have, that's done and done.

    Well, now I know not to even attempt to use as it will just cause me frustration. Nothing more annoying than "fast" tech going slow.

    Admittedly, I've only ever tried to use the Vita browser once, to use this site, and it froze. I literally had to reset my handheld to be able to get it to respond at all.
