The visitors, playing with the aid of a slight first half breeze, led at the interval by 0-7 to 0-3, Brian Kelly getting four of their scores.
A total of 30 frees were awarded in what was a very poor first half.
It took Tipperary 23 minutes upon resumption to get back on terms with Browne kicking six points, and when he netted expertly in the 27th minute to send Tipperary clear, the Carlow challenge petered out.
A total of 64 frees were awarded during the course of the game.
