Bout dam time they start working on the browser, though I don't expect huge changes.

And I'm confused about the PSN time thing?

I was hoping for them to fix up the internet for quite a while now, good to now it has now been improved.
Nitrowolf2  +   1391d ago
I take that I don't expect anything huge back. The web browser is so much more faster
Youtube is LOTS better then before
Kevin ButIer  +   1391d ago
Wow finally a good update...
problemchild84  +   1391d ago
Yeah fixing the browser has been long overdue, it seems to work much faster for me now after the update and actually works now on PS3!! Plus it hasn't frozen once yet since updated.

Nice and all, of course better than the crap updates that didn't add s***, I'm expecting more features to be added now that Vita is coming, well I'm hoping for that :P
Masta_fro  +   1391d ago
Youtube is STILL 240p which sucks ass!!!!
darthv72  +   1390d ago
my company uses dropbox for things. Pretty neat. It's basically a cloud storage option. You have dropbox client on your pc and can put stuff there and pull it down from any other dropbox client.

Still, you likely wont be able to watch Hulu and if you can watch Youtube better, you wont the next day.

Downloading it now and I'm in the States.
Darth_Bane79  +   1391d ago
There is a Hulu app for the PS3 you can download for free at the PS store. It works just like Netflix
yesmynameissumo  +   1391d ago
While Google Music now loads, you can't listen to you library via the browser. You CAN download you songs to your PS3 and play them though. WIN.
yesmynameissumo  +   1391d ago
Just cleared cache...everything deleteable. Now Google Music Works!

This -
is a good update.
gapecanpie  +   1391d ago
Better late then never Sony ... Good job ... its way faster and don't freeze up .... but I don't have a need for this any more as my computer is hooked up to my surround receiver which is connected to t.v. as my ps3 is too and all I have to do is flick the t.v. station and use my computer browser which is still miles faster then the ps3 web browser.

Dammit. I wanted to try out the browser before I updated so I know how well it works now (haven't used the browser in a couple years), but then it froze and now it's "checking and restoring file system"... Am I f**ked? I think I'm f**ked.

Anyway, it's about time that they updated the browser. I know there's a lot of people who only have a PS3 as their browser.

Edit: It seems fine now. Updating.

The translation of the time-thingy is terrible. There is now an option to let the PS3 auto-sync the time with the internet upon connection to the PSN.
falloutx  +   1391d ago
The web browser is much better it hasn't frozen once since the update. Hopefully this isn't just a one time thing and they keep updating the browser.
soraalam1  +   1391d ago
Guys, for HD YouTube on PS3, check out You can even download any video!
Krew_92  +   1390d ago
Yeah the time was always getting messed up, you had to constantly be changing it because it moved drastically.

This new automatic time update is really helpful.
jwk94  +   1391d ago
Not available in the US yet.
princejb134  +   1391d ago

I was going to tell you it was but then I remembered I don't live in the U.S. anymore
mttrackmaster38  +   1391d ago
Was just about to play Kingdoms of Amalur, but it wouldn't let me sync my EA account(for my free dlc) before I download this big ass update. Who even uses the ps3 browser?
Arksine  +   1391d ago
There are other reasons for the update, but the most noticable for the end user is the browser.

I think sometimes folks forget that the PS3 is also a bluray player. I suspect that most of the PS3 updates have to do with that functionality. I know my standalone bluray player requires firmware updates fairly often.
edwineverready  +   1391d ago
I do as i don't have a pc or laptop.
Dee_91  +   1391d ago
I get tired of watching porn on my laptop and at my desk.

The PS3 web browser used to rock (never crashed) for quite a long time but then it is atm (before fw4.10) freezing my console all the time .

I guess now I will be able to use this nice web browser once again !

BTW I don t know why people hate this WB so much since it is actually good to be used to answer e-mails , checj gaming; other news etc.
I got a PC not far away from my PS3 but I rather just use my console if I am going to check "simple " web pages.

Dualshockers_Carlos  +   1391d ago
So now we can all use the browser without fear of freezing and force-powering off the system? Great job Sony.
Mister_G  +   1391d ago
