    Why does the browser suck so bad?

    it is ridiculously slow and reloads pages randomly for no apparent reason. Browsers are not new tech and there are plenty of alternatives.....none of which are available for Vita. /end gripe

    Can't say I've had issues with the browser neither. Use it quite frequently when checking requirements for trophies etc as well.
    Whenever I open the browser it is on the last page I had opened if I didn't close down the window previously.

    Yeah, I've never experienced any problems you've listed either.

    Updated Vita last night and I am noticing MUCH improvement in the browser. Maybe a bad file got overwritten or something. dunno.

    Me too.

    My wife took my phone from my hands, my daughter 5 minutes later takes my galaxy tab from my hands, so I grabbed my vita and it wasn't bad.

    Before the update the Vita browser was virtually unusable.

    Had zero problems with mine and I've had it little over a month, I too use it quite frequently to google Trophy guides and Roadmaps.

    I kinda agree with Chris here. It's not that its horrible -- and maybe its that I spent so much more time with it -- but I think I like the PSP's browser design and control more.

    Turning off javascript on PSP/PS3 sped things up a ton if that options in the Vita too.

    I posted elsewhere asking about the 3DS browser and how it compares to the Vita.
    The Vita browser totally destroyed the 3DS one. With that said, i used the PSP browser for about a year and it was... horrible but I couldn't be without Gmail.

    Having any games running in the background will also affect performance. Browsers need free memory.

    If it runs out of memory the page reloads, sometimes continuously. But usually it does prompt you to shut another app off.
    I find the browser terrible also :/

    I noticed that last night. Is that new? Never saw that prompt before.
