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.
Users may navigate among these options by using the up and down buttons of the D-pad.
There are three different rendering modes: "Normal", "Just-Fit", and "Smart-Fit".
"Normal" will display the page with no changes, "Just-Fit" will attempt to shrink some elements to make the whole page fit on the screen and preserve layout and "Smart-Fit" will display content in the order it appears in the HTML, and with no size adjustments; instead it will drop an element down below the preceding element if it starts to go off the screen.
It was claimed to provide much faster loading times than the default browser and provides better web page compatibility.
Like many other video game consoles, the Play Station Portable is capable of photo, audio, and video playback in a variety of formats.
However, unlike the later Remote Play feature between the Play Station Vita and the Play Station 4, the Remote Play capabilities between the PSP and the PS3 are much more limited.
Although most of the PS3's capabilities related to its main user interface are accessible with Remote Play, playback of DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, Play Station 2 games, most Play Station 3 games, and copy-protected files stored on the PS3's hard drive are not supported.
Parents can limit content by enabling Browser Start Up Control which blocks all access to the web browser and creating a 4-digit PIN under [Settings] in [Security].
Additionally, the browser can be configured to run under a proxy server and can be protected by the security PIN to enable the use of web filtering or monitoring software through a network.
It uses the Xross Media Bar (XMB) as its user interface, similar to the Play Station 3 console.
Updates add new functionality as well as security patches to prevent homebrew applications and plugins from being executed on the system.
Users can navigate through them using the left and right buttons of the D-pad, which move the icons forward or back across the screen, highlighting just one at a time, as opposed to using any kind of pointer to select an option.
