A lot of folks would like to see Sony move to an Opera-based browser, which runs on Linux (and the Wii uses). Whether that's the right solution or not, Sony can do better in the Web-surfing department. Heck, if the iPhone can have good Web browser, why can't the PS3 and the PSP have good ones?
The PS3 is a very powerful system which seems to be gathering some momentum after a slow start, so it's too bad that it is let down by the browser. With the processing power and available memory, Opera should run like a dream on the system. (Note that Flash is still basically out of Opera or Sony's hands, as Adobe runs the show. But Flash Lite 3 would surely work well on the PS3.)
Sony has used Opera for other products in the past, and Opera is even the default browser on UIQ, a platform used by phones from Sony Ericsson. Get in touch with us, Sony, and I'm sure we can work something out. You need a better browser, and you know where to get it 🙂
