If you own one of the Amazon Kindle Fire tablets, and don’t care for the default web browser you may be looking for some alternatives. I can tell you from experience that the web browser that ships on the Fire isn’t the best. Maxthon has announced that it has updated its browser for the Kindle Fire with new features.
The updated browser is available for download right now at no cost. Maxthon says that the new browser improves speed, functionality, and convenience. The browser supports multiple platforms so you can switch from your Fire tablet to your Android smartphones, PC, or iPad and be in the same place. The sinking of tabs, history, and favorites is enabled using free cloud services.
Other new features of the app include improved start with better uptime and playback of videos. The browser also features page pre-fetching that predicts and automatically loads the next page you’re viewing. The browser also has text auto wrapping, which is optimized to accommodate the Fire screen.
The browser also supports a super gesture feature that allows users to create, close, and switch tabs using gestures. The browser has various themes and skins available, and has tabbed browsing with powerful management tools. Other features include a download manager, private browsing mode that doesn’t save history, and quick access to view the last closed tabs and the most visited sites. You can download the app here.
