You sure it isn't your connection, or something?

(Also, try disabling Javascript.)

I don't know that I would say it sucked for a built gaming system browser... Put it this way, which gaming system has a top notched browser? I only use the Vita browser to assist while in game... Which now you can use without having to close your game...

i use my vita browser for everything, i use it more than my laptop. i dont find the browser that bad. once in a while it runs slow or the page keeps reloading, but once i delete the history and cookies it works fine again.  also i do my banking on vita if i'm on the go. the site for my bank works great. so yeah i dont mind the browser. i do wish they work on the keypad for vita, the space bar dont put spaces in half time.

I've noticed the browser loads about 70% of a page, then takes a while to complete. It does it eventually, but there always seems to be a pause.

Same here. it do slow down at times but yup, deleting cookies definitely does the trick.

 

im sure they'll tweek it further as it was better before but something was up so they patched the system and it effected to browser. 

 

I have thd 3g model which i use as my dkype mobile and the browser was fast even on 3g but now on 3G its no good at all for me in nyc but i know they'll tweek it bbetter than ever.

 

on WiF it flies.

Having used the Vita's browser for a while abroad, it seems the browser loads images last, and until they load you cannot really begin navigating properly.
Other browsers perhaps do it a bit more intelligently?

At least it's better than the PSP Web Browser. Smiley Tongue

Seriously though it runs fine for me.

I use it for all my mobile needed browsing, (more than my phone when I am at home).  I notice the browser locks up A LOT, requiring me to go and delete the history, sometimes even restarting the VITA.  I don't know why it does that, maybe not enough dedicated memory for the browser.

 

All I know is, would be nice for it to get fix.

I made this, want one for yourself? PM me
