how can I upgrade my browser within Playstation 4?

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

             I have recently purchased a Playstation 4 console with controller.  At this point, I seem to have more questions than answers about it despite of my enjoyment of it.  One important question which I have and confident that someone will be able to answer is the following:  How can I upgrade my browser within PS4?  To be perfectly honest. I am not even sure which browser the PS4 console is using by default.  

             Any feedback regarding the step by step procedures for upgrading the default browser of PS4 will be greatly appreciated.

             Thank you

              George

Hi George
You are pretty much stuck with the basic browser provided on the PS4. It’s integrated into the Playstation’s operating system

Hi There,

             Thank you for answering my question.  Just out of curiosity, can I download and install an alternative browser like Google Chrome onto PS4?

Sorry, no, just the built in browser Sony provide.  Underneath the hood it's a very different operating system to a computer or phone :(

Hi There,

              Thank you very much for shedding light on my question.  To be perfectly honest, I did not know about the inherent limitations mentioned.  This certainly limits a great deal of customization to the PS4.
