There's not been a FW update for ages and I'd like to suggest that an update to the browser is long overdue. For a start, it might just help us to view these forums properly, which is obviously the first place anyone using the browser is likely to go. Also, I've noticed in the last couple of days that Yahoo Mail doesn't seem to work properly anymore. I've always thought the browser is one of the best and most useful features of the PS3 (aside from gaming of course). It would be a great shame if such a useful feature (which I'm very attached to and use a lot) isn't properly maintained and updated, making it eventually useless. Please Sony,you updated it once in the distant past, it really needs it again!

Only limited to PS3 if you don't know what you are doing on a web browser.

Youtube H264 Remux sites have been around for ages, before they did not work very well as they used the wrong H264 level flag when encoding on YouTube. Thats no longer a problem.

Plus HTML 5 is now running on some of Youtube..

Proper Applications would also be nice, rather than a webpage thrown together to look like one like BBC iPlayer.

Iplayer STARTED as A streaming content provider only, Downloads Did not exist and still don't for Some systems. The Web page was not thrown together its designed for all NON Monitor use.  

 

The PS3 web content application is being tested by The US firm Netflix. The Application comes on a BD Which Forces WEB streaming of their content with US users acting as Beta users.  

After the Application Passes what will be most likely years of public US use, it Will be released as an Installed App for PS3 (Allready confirmed by Netflix).  Then other Companies Can likely Buy the App to customize for their Content.

 

WebTV is not going away. TVs with browsers (Yes they do, stop buying cheap HDTV sets ) Dont have storage HDDs as its not Needed. 

DivX in the USA Has been signed Up By LG to supply them with their DivXTV hardware for All New LG TVs. Again More IPTV supplied by Broadband. It hides the WEBTV systems under a shiny new interface.

The flash player really needs an update, viewing flash on the PS3 when compared with a Flash Video Via laptop connected to the same tele... they aren't in the same league obviously the laptop with latest Flash player should look better but the difference is so large that it questions what effort went into the PS3's Flash Player.

If the PS3 wants to advertise 'It Only Does Everything' then i believe the browser really needs an overhaul / update

Its an extremely important part of the PS3 not all users use it.. but i'm sure that enough users do that it justifies updating.

Again fire fox will never be on PS3 it's owned 100% buy MOZZILLA they already said NO. GOOGLE IS a WEB kit browser And again you face the same coding problems you allready HAVE. ZERO plugins exsist coded for ANY browser for PS3, it's all custom work, you're idea is not months worth of coding it's Years worth To turn unstable FLASH 10 into a stable, low memory usage, secure Plugin. which currently Does not exsist...

The browser in PS3 is NetFront and I think we all agree it not up to job.

There is no way of geting Firefox runing on PS3 as system has so little ram. But there is Fennec (Firefox Mobile). It works very well and has a low memory footprint.

If want to see what Fennect can do and do not own Nokia N900/N810 then can download for Windows/Linux/Mac http://www.mozilla.com/en-GB/mobile/platforms/

PS Fennec works with Google Wave, something that Netfront can not touch. Yes Fennec can render HTML5.

It would be nice if Firefox mobile could be converted.

But again Its not being coded For PPC CPU or the PS3 OS and again theres NO Flash support.

Why is there no flash because Adobe Messed up the coding and could not get it to pass the Quality controll Mozilla had set..

So again the same Flash Problems will continue.

 

Net front was/is made by a japanese Based company. That might be why Sony are sticking with it.

I'm sure that if the clever bods working at Sony put their heads together they could figure out some solutions to the problems faced by the PS3 browser. It's a great concept, several years ahead of it's time at it's inception. Even now, if you look at hands-on reviews of the current crop of tvs with rudimentary browsers built in they don't match the PS3 browser's functionality and can only view certain websites eg Youtube. Nettop PCs are an up and coming rival to the PS3 in this area so it would be a shame if it fell behind the competition. Internet use via HDTV is a new and welcome convenience and a great feature for the PS3.

I concur this must be a feature given priority with an improvement to flash the 4OD and itvplayer will work because now they are now running on flash 10.
