The new 2.00 update is now live for the Vita with some nice improvements (most notably PS+). The browser is so much better, like miles better than what the old one used to be. Here's a quick before and after (I verified these were accurate, though the pics are from neogaf). Also finding it to be a bit snappier in a few places here and there (Near seems to be much quicker, Trophies Data loads quicker, etc..). I also recommend downloading the newest copy of the Content Manager Assistant for PC if you use it, update here. I believe you would likely need the newest version (v2.00.5976.25) to set up the wireless syncing option, which was much easier to setup than i was expecting.

One of the best parts is being able to now use the browser in-game (useful for GameFAQs).
