i recently came across a usefull feature within home i have nt noticed before,to use google etc within home.
i find it usefull for checking the forums here.
This method is nt great or the most reliable in the world but i thought i would post it incase any other users may find it usefull.
Whilst in home press the start button on the navigator go to the far right and select the home online help pages.
when on the online manual select the search function in the top left without typing anything in it.
it will show 0 results but in the bottom right show a powered by google icon.
Use the cursor to select the powered by google icon this will open a google search page to type in whatever you want.
some tips as some of the pages may load as blank pages as the ps3 browser does nt have enough cache memory.
I find it seems to work smoother if you enter the initial online manual with the java script switched on
Once you have reached the google page switch java off.
you can be signed in and post replies or new topics but to do this you need to sign in on the normal ps3 browser before entering home.
if you get too many blank pages you can use the tools option on the browser menu after pressing triangle to delete cache
Conrad_Max may be interested in the info in your OP I know hes been requesting browsers in suggestions for a long time.
im pleased some people find it usefull
key to it working succesfully seems to br do it in a low traffic space and disabling the java when actually reaching the google search page and leaving it off for further searches and pages.
and clear the web browser cache frequently using option from the triangle button
