5 Best Alternatives for Kindle Fire Browser

Posted by on .

As a fan of Kindle Fire, I do love Kindle Fire very much, but there is one thing that Kindle Fire frustrates me. It is the Kindle Fire browser--Silk browser which is designed and developed by Amazon's team. The Kindle Fire browser is supposed to be awesome and fast, but the fact goes far from its original intention of design. It is slow, unresponsive a lot and even crashes some time. Another drawback of Kindle Fire Silk browser is the wasting of space on the screen. The top and bottom space of the browser are all wasted. What's more, the Amazon doesn't offer any alternative in Amazon App Store to get as many people as possible to use the Silk browser. This action is really disappointed me. However, we always can find other ways to install the alternatives for Kindle Fire Browser. Here are 5 best browser for Kindle Fire for your choice.

Kindle fire browser alternative

Before installing any of these best alternatives for Kindle Fire browser on Kindle Fire, you have to allow installation of applications that are not from Appstore.

If you have a Google account, you can do it perfectly with Google Chrome. You can use the incognito mode to browse the website if you do not want the browser to record where you browse and what you download. The data saver feature can compress images, fonts, and other web objects by Google server before sending out. This function will reduce mobile data usage by up to 50% while browsing. If you turn on safe browsing, you will see a warning before you navigate to a potentially dangerous website or download a potentially harmful app. Voice search is also available for Google Chrome. It also can choose from search results that instantly appear as you type and quickly access previously visited pages.

Tabbed browsing, incognito mode, night mode, fullscreen mode, desktop mode are all available for your choice. What's more, it enables you to sync bookmarks, tabs, history& passwords across devices.

I wanted to compose you that little bit of observation in order to thank you yet again for the unique opinions you have featured here. This has been simply incredibly generous with you to make easily exactly what many people would've advertised as an electronic book in order to make some profit on their own, particularly given that you might have tried it if you decided. Those good ideas as well worked to become a good way to fully grasp other people online have similar fervor much like my personal own to see more and more around this problem. I believe there are thousands of more pleasant times up front for people who examine your site.

Maybe it is related to the Android version you are using. So check your kindle fire os version and then find the right version of Google chrome .apk file to install.
