Amazon's Silk browser gets new features and a refreshed UI
An easier-to-find "Reading View" takes out excess parts of a web page to make it easier to read. Unnecessary images and clutter are stripped away, leaving you with the important content to view. The update also improves the browser controls and tabs, making it easier to navigate on your tablet. Tabs now have rounded corners so that you can tell when one ends and another one begins. And the new Silk app takes some of the menu options that were scattered throughout the browser, and places them on a left-side panel.
Check out the slideshow below to see some of the changes which should be coming to the Silk browser on your Amazon Kindle Fire via an update, soon.

Not a big fan of the most visited sites navigation... I mean, who really wants to pick up my tablet and be bombarded with All-Anal BBW Midget BDSM sites?

I didn't even know Amazon had its own Web browser.

I hate the Silk browser. I sideloaded and use Opera, Dolphin, and Firefox on my Kindle. I wish Amazon would add more browser choices.
