With Sony-promised support past a decade on the PS3, I don't think so.

That Pandora player works fine on my PS3.  For everything else, including the PS Forums, I use Firefox on my MacBook.

The PS3 has an embarrassingly low amount of RAM. That is the main reason why the web browser is so abysmal and will never/can never be improved.

Sorry to say, but the PS3 wasn't meant to be a full on computer or anything, it gets the job done in other areas, and either way the PS4 is coming out, you can't really complain to sony about this, the specs aren't that great. I suppose you could complain, but I don't think there's anything to actually FIX, unless you made an app that devoted the consoles power to the web at that moment. I use the web browser though a lot too trust me, but a ps3 isn't a computer again, I just don't own one and this is convenient enough.

Yeah the xbox 360 browser is much faster the the Ps3's lol. But I only used it once to and never used it again. Laptop and Ipad are fine for me.
