This is great, I know it's nothing big now but hopefully more time will be put into it and it turn into something bigger. I tried it and it was a bit laggy, still better than paying $10 bucks for a sonic game from the Sega Genesis from PSN.
Seems legit to me. Thats one way to bring an emulator to non jailbroken ps3s
Kudos for this! Hopefully this will flesh out to be as viable as the other PC-based browser emulators.
Great news! This is a fantastic way to bring some home brew love to consoles that are unfortunate enough not to be jail broken.
Place your bets on Sony removing the browser from the PS3 in the next release, cause they just love screwing over their customers.

WoW great work. Good to see that there are still coders out who do interesting and nice stuff for the ps3. This "non-cfw needed" emulator is one off the coolesd things i have read the last time.
Very cool, can't wait to get home from work and check it out!
Isn't working at the moment for me. He should definitely gets a better server to host (for this awesome idea), now as he released it public, this "error404.000webhost.com" gives me an error.
Where is the link? I can't seem to find it
