Email

If you've still got a POP3, IMAP, or Exchange email inbox, you can use the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch's built-in email app to browse your inboxes on your tablet. After you've followed the wizard, your inbox(es) will automatically sync, and alert you to new emails as they come in.

Web Browsing

The browser on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch is clean-cut, but doesn't offer much in the way of advanced controls, which is fine for most use. Pages load quickly depending on your signal and bandwidth, but ultimately you should notice little difference between the browser on your computer and this one.
