silk but not smooth
on 23 August 2014
I have my kindle fire for just over 12 months now, the first one I had lasted just under a month before something went wrong with the WiFi connection and it has to be sent back- amazon were brilliant at the ex- change and I had my replacement the day after talking to them, but it was still disappointing to have had to go through that experience.
My replacement has not suffered the same fate I am pleased to say and I use it for hours each day, surfing the net, reading books, playing games etc.
I have found lately that the silk browser has been locking up and closing and slowing to an absolute crawl each evening sometimes this is solved by clearing the cookies and switching off and on ( that old favourite!) But not always.
This is incredibly frustrating as I sit here watching the ipads and nexus that my family members have surfing away with no problems what so ever .
I run an anti virus which tells me all is well and it seems to be late evening that this problem raises its ugly head so I am at a loss.as to what it is playing at ( funnily enough it seems to be particularly prone to closing unexpectedly when shopping on Amazon, trying to look at product details, which is costing them money in lost business!!!)
I still love it dearly though and when things run smoothly it is phenomenal, but like everything it is when it is not doing as it should that I notice it more.
I love the nice blog, bright screen that makes things nice and clear ( so good I very often use with without my glasses- it really is that good)
I love the capabilities of it from movies to email and the thousands of books I can have in my bag when I have this with me, I would recommend this to others but silk is not the best browser and it would be better if it used a better one because the problems I have encountered would be solved.
