We recently received an enquiry from a client asking if their e-commerce store built on the Ballyhoo Commerce software would operate on the Playstation 3 browser. A little research gave very little insight into the specification of the browser distributed with the PS3 so we ran some tests of our own. We thought we’d share our findings as they may help others.
Internet Explorer 6 Behaviours
Firstly we noticed that the browser was not managing fixed positioning in CSS, a trait that is famously associated with Internet Explorer 6. We set up a test page which uses conditional statements
If you visit our test page on the PS3 browser, you will find it responds to the conditional statement for Internet Explorer 6. So, if you are keen for your site to render correctly on the PS3 you must work around all the peculiarities associated with Internet Explorer 6.
