It is painfully slow so I just use my smartphone and don't mess with it.
I've never really understood why anyone would want to use the in-car browser. Isn't it much easier to just use a smartphone or tablet for when you want to browse something in the car?

Elon reportedly was interested in upgrading the Safari browser to Google Chrome at one point. I think there are also questions about whether Tesla's UI software is using the Tegra chipset efficiently, this may be part of the reason for the slow browser response. If true, we can hope for some improvement without relying on availability of a connectivity or hardware upgrade.
Wouldn't you rather browse something on a 17 inch screen than on a smartphone? Most people don't want to carry tablets with them all the time, and in the U.S. most tablets are bought as Wi-Fi only, not 3G.
The browser in Model S is NOT Safari.

Chrome seems unnecessarily bloated for this application, wouldn't something like Firefox work much better?
