Kindle's Web Browser
Before you learn how to read email on Kindle, you should understand how the Kindle web browser works.
The Kindle is mainly an e-reader used to download and read e-books. It does that job very, very well. Besides using it for reading e-books, however, you can also use it as a web access device because it comes with its very own wireless connection, which in turn can be used to read email.
The Kindle browser uses WebKit Engine, which is the same engine that Apple Safari, Google Chrome, and the browser on the iPhone and Android uses. To open the Kindle Web Browser, click Launch Browser from the Experimental screen, or you can open the browser by following a link from a book you are reading. When you click on a link in a book, the Web browswer will automatically open to that link.
You can also open the Web Browser by searching. Press the Menu button and select Search. Start typing in the search field, and use the 5-way controller to search using Google, Wikipedia, or select G to Web.
If you want to navigate to a different site after you open the Web browser, press Menu and then select Enter URL from the list of options. Type the URL address using the keyboard on your Kindle, and the press the 5-way controller to confirm that you want to navigate to that URL. To navigate around the pages, use the Next page and Previous page buttons. These buttons work in much the same way as you would use a mouse to navigate on a website on your computer.
The links on a page will be underlined. Use the 5-way controller to open a link. Navigate to the link and press the 5-way controller. You can also use the 5-way controller to enter text into text boxes or search fields. Type the text using the keyboard, and then press the 5-way controller to confirm.
If you want to view the websites you have recently visited, press the Menu button and choose History from the list. This will show you the History. To see a list of bookmarks, move the 5-way controller to the right side. Or, if you want to bookmark your current page, press the Menu button and select Bookmark this Page.
