Did Elon ever come through on his promise to fix the web browser?

My older MCU1 X had an unusable browser when I got it late 2017. It would take 2-5 minutes to render a basic webpage, even when I had full signal or was on WiFi. Once they switched to chromium it became usable. It is still not what I'd call snappy or quick but it made a huge difference and it isn't completely useless now.
MCU 1 browser is not Chromium. It was never updated.

The MCU1 browser is still unusable. It would randomly enter into a state where nothing would load at all until reboot.

And it's still working on V9 or V10? Mine works on V8, but I think my version was before browser "fix".

Lol. The browser is still the same. The big fix was them upgrading the hardware

Ah, I was mistaken. It is still Safari indeed (image attached). That being said, there *was* an update made to it, around the time they rolled out Chromium on MCU2, that made it substancially more responsive than it used to be. The overlap in timing is why I assumed it too had updated to chromium.

After spending time in an MCU2 car, there is no comparison between the two. MCU2 makes MCU1 feel extremely slow. I'm hoping for a reasonable upgrade path some day.
