PS3 To Receive Google Chrome?
I think we can all agree that the browser included with the PlayStation 3 isn't all that great. It has gotten significantly better over time (back when it launched, the browser was terrible) but even so, it could still use improvement.
Google Chrome would be an improvement, yes? You've probably seen this rumor that popped up this past weekend; it started at European gaming site PS3Life, reporting on a post in the NeoGAF forums. Someone found something interesting in sifting through the ps3-webkit-support.diff (yeah, you'd have to be really bored), and that's where we find our Chrome hint. Obviously, you can't expect Sony to say anything as their "we don't comment on rumor or speculation" standpoint is the default reply, and unsurprisingly, Google wouldn't comment, either. We haven't been able to find anything that adds more fuel to the fire, so this rumor simply remains a discussion piece at this time. How often do you use the PS3's Internet browser? And would you use it more often if it had a much better browser?
Personally, I never use it; there's a computer about five feet from the PS3; why would I bother? But the PS3 browser should be functional and effective, at least.
