Amazon’s Kindle and Fire tablets are high-power and are often very good value for money, but many of us lose the ability to install or own and use our own browser. Unlike standard Android tablets where you can install whatever browser you like from the App store, Amazon refuses to activate browsers like Google, UC browser and Mozilla Firefox app store storage space that supports their own Silk browser.
Unfortunately, if you aren’t a fan of Silk, want to be ready to import and use your Google Chrome settings, or otherwise need a different browser, this will be inconvenient.
Luckily, you’ll still install and use another chrome browser for kindle fire using an APK, without jailbreaking or unlocking your Amazon tablet. However, you’ll need a touch of patience, or a touch more technical skill than is required for tapping a button to put in an app. For More: Google Play on Kindle Fire Download and Install with easy Steps
