Like every single time, or just after you have being using after a while?  Cause the browser has always been like that

Try clearing the browser cache.  Happened to me once and that fixed it.

so i had this issue on my newly rma'd ps3.  basically the os is messed up, it goes to read a certain file and the thing crashes.  for me happened about 5 times withing a few days and i couldnt have more then one window open.

 

emailed sony, they told me to try this, i did.  not nearly as bad now.

 


Safe Mode Option #3 : Restore File System:

What Option # 3 Does: Attempts to repair all areas on the hard disk drive where files can be saved. Corrupted data may be erased if it cannot be recovered. This option may also be successful in fixing issues where the system freezes in relation to the XMB, loading game or downloaded content, installing game or firmware data, etc.

You will need to enter Safe Mode and restore the system as follows:

1. Hold down the power button in front so you get a solid red light (stand by mode) & make sure no disc is inside.
2. Next, hold down the power button until you hear 3 beeps. You will hear a beep, a pause, a 2nd beep, followed by two really quick beeps (third beep).
3. Let go right after the third beep.
4. On the screen it will ask you to pair your controller. Plug in the controller to pair it or hit the PS button.
5. From the list of available choices, choose option 3 to restore the PS3 file system. No data on the HDD will be erased.


 

lemme know if it helps, if not we can go from their.

No.. Its the internet cache like a computer has nothing to do with system/game data.

its not necessarily the cache.  as i said, i JUST had this exact issue.  the cache can be the cause of issues, but that is more likely to cause page hangs and stuff like that, not crashes.

Every time I use the web browser I can go to 1 web page but after that it'll freeze.
