The Play Station Portable comes with a web browser for browsing the Internet.
The web browser is a version of the Net Front browser made by Access Co. and was released for free with the 2.00 system software update.
The version 2.50 upgrade added Unicode (UTF-8) character encoding and Auto-Select as options in the browser's encoding menu, and also introduced the saving of input history for online forms.
Version 2.70 of the PSP's system software introduced basic Flash capabilities to the browser.
The browser also has limited tabbed browsing, with a maximum of three tabs.
When a website tries to open a link in a new window, the browser opens it in a new tab.
Recently, Trend Micro for PSP was added as a feature that can be enabled via a subscription to filter or monitor content on the PSP.
The PSP browser is slower compared to modern browsers and often runs out of memory due to limitations put in place by Sony.
The battery must be at least 50% charged or else the system will prevent the update from installing.
