Amazon Kindle eReader Review

An impressive e-reader in its own right, at a price that undercuts the rest of the market.

Web Browsing

The included browser with the Amazon Kindle Touch is just plain terrible. Though the screen delaying refresh makes the experience less painful than it used to be, eReaders of this size and type of screen were never meant to handle this type of application, nor should they. Not only is it ridiculously sluggish, but it's hard to browse and manipulate the image size. Should you be looking for a tablet that can handle this, you're better off finding one with an LCD screen than an eInk eReader.

This is easily one of the worst browsers out there.
