I can't honestly say as I NEVER go online or use any of their online "services" other than "Update"....

If it is needed, they picked the right browser. Imagine if they had picked IE like ChrisBard did! ":O}

If they had included a good browser from the start, more owners might be inclined to see a PS3 as useful for web browsing.

I've never once "browsed" the web on my PS3. Visited iPlayer, but that's about it.

That being said, Sony need to focus their time and energy into making a media server GUI for the PS3.
