Sony should look into Kylo Web Browser for TV. It’s open-source and powered by Mozilla.

The new portal takes up the whole screen when you open it just put it on FULL DISPLAY and it will (i have on an 60″). only thing about that is when you open an tab it goes back to the reg and it stays like that until you open it back to the new home portal. We do need an more reliable and stable browser though. My PS3′s all of them I’ve had always freeze up on the browser.

Firefox with viruses? Highly doubt that. I’m a computer programer and I’ve taken apart Firefox Aurora piece by piece. There are no viruses built into Firefox. It uses quite a bit of CPU because of all the useless things, but it’s slowly getting better. Firefox would be a better browser for Sony to use on the Playstation 3.

@rjohnson1990 – I wasn’t saying firefox already has them, I’m stating the fact that firefox is easily prone to virus attacks. I don’t care if your a programmer and blah blah blah, I’ve known people that programmed and modded and everything, built their own computers from the ground up, blah blah blah makes no difference, unless they allow a high anti-virus for free… F Firefox!

There have been major improvements to the PS3 browser over the past few firmware revisions. It does a reasonable job passing acid2 and acid3 tests, even though it’s html5test.com score is incredibly low. The launch screen in the browser is now optimized for 1080p (and looks great!), even though playing PS Blog videos in-browser still looks incredibly awful.

Technically, I think this topic can be closed out even if there’s a few other tweaks the browser realistically needs before it can be mothballed entirely.
