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

Funny about that, this describes Spotify's operation that the rest of the world has been dealing with except it would manage to cause the MCU to reboot by itself, no driver input needed.

I keep making service calls for my browser until it's fixed. I know it worked before. I will keep making calls until it gets fixed.

That's so funny! What do they sound like? Do you phrase it differently each time, or are you like in Office Space movie?
"Yeah if you could fix the browser that'd be great"

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.
