Google Chrome for PS3, Ideal Launch When PSN Back Up

Late last year we posted an article which spoke about the possibility of the Google Chrome web browsing coming to the PlayStation 3, now almost six months later we are beginning to hear more, which got us thinking, will Chrome be there when the PlayStation Network returns?

A recent article posted on GizmoCrunch suggests that leaked code found in PS3 WebKit source code hinted that Sony’s console may be getting its own fully functional Chrome web browser, now we are wondering if this will be rolled out with the new firmware update which will hit the PS3 when the PSN is back online.

There are a few reasons why this is a good idea, firstly in terms of security Google Chrome has a solid reputation and regarded as unhackable by many (which is great news following such a high-profile security breach), also the downtime has given developers plenty of time to work on the software to ensure that when it hits the network it is as good as it can be.

We are sure that when Sony switch the PlayStation Network back on they will be heavily promoting what changes have been made, a fresh new web browser will undoubtedly be another great feature to talk about and will allow people to have a richer web browsing experience on their HDTVs.

Do you think Google Chrome will be there when the PSN is up and running and a new firmware update has been rolled out? Do you want it? Let us know in the comments section below.
