Hello All,
Does anybody know if there is way to make the internet browser page on the PS3 full screen size 16:9 and not old school 4:3 size?

Push R3 to zoom to the max level, then hold L2 to zoom out until the sides are at the edges of your TV.

Yes, you can. For some reason I can't remember how though, but I just did it 2 weeks ago right after I got my PS3 (haven't really used the browser though)

If no one replies, I'll look tonight and figure it out for you. I don't remember it being that hard though to find.

Speaking of the browser though, how capable is it? I mean, what can't it do that Firefox/IE can, as far as technologies (forms, SSL, video, flash, silverlight, etc...). I'm debating on getting a wireless keyboard for mine, but need to play with it more to see if it's worth using it at all, or if I should just stick to my laptop.

Edit: Looked it up on another site that says to press triangle and the options for resolution are in the view and tools menu.

Ok, found it. To get the internet browser in 16:9 instead of 4:3, you have to do this:
  1. Open up the internet browser.
  2. Press Triangle
  3. Go to "View"
  4. Select "Maximum Size"
Wallah....16:9 mode (assuming you have a 16:9 TV of course). To reverse it back to 4:3, just go back in and select "Standard Size"

Hope that helps.

EDIT: just realized this doesn't really work like I thought it did...it seems to only display that first page (whatever the default is...ps3.us.playstation.com) as 16:9, but I tried a couple other sites and they still render 4:3. Sorry...guess the zoom is the best bet.
