The system is and always has been region free.

At this point they should only be updating the Store on PS3. That thing is a mess.

Isn't it like PS3 and PSP, region-locked but with virtually no game using the "feature" (for a reason I'd like to understand, in fact)?

That's a technicality, for sure, or at least until you get *the* region-locked game...

The new store is pretty nice and seems snappier.

edit: I can't read. This is a PS3 thread.

I feel like 5.0 will end up being the last firmware that they do.
They will props make a big moment of it and add some cool feature.
Maybe PSP emulation?
PS4 Remote play?
Some media feature?
Or maybe restore the Other OS feature for people to play with for years to come?

Who knows.
It will most likely be stability.

The best time to own a PS3 is when Sony stops updating the system. Then you can turn it on, play a game, go online, etc without being prompted to update.

Don't Japanese PS3s already have this feature?

Hopefully this update fixes the crash bug that I kept running into taking screenshots during MGSV.

Does this include the ability to use the web browser on all websites without hanging yet?

5.0 update will probably be at the very end of the PS3's lifetime when they prepare to phase out the PlayStation Network.
