Your Say

Why? I already have it on my desktop as an app. Why are they clouding it up?

Get a Kindle if you like reading blogs. With the 3G Kindle you can read and post on blogs for free while mobile. I use my Kindle more for web surfing than books.

www.skweezer.com is very handy in making web pages more practical for mobile devices, including the Kindle. Free mobile web surfing of text pages.

Fascinating: "Your web browser [Firefox] isn't supported yet."

They want me to use Chrome, which seems to think it needs to spin up a new process for every single tab I open (and I usually have LOTS of those).

I guess that's fine for just Kindle viewing. But as Jewel notes, I already have a Kindle reading app for my PC, which works fine.
