I'm re-posting this from wololo's blog. There is a javascript risk on the Vita browser that can steal passwords from sites that you visit. So it is time to be a little more careful with your browsing. If you need to read about it, you can here:

In all seriousness, does anyone use the Vita browser with Javascript on? I found that with JS on, the Vita browser would want to completely refresh many web pages every few seconds - basically making them unreadable.

While in my head I knew there was a browser somewhere on my Vita, I couldn't tell you a thing about it.
