If you have an e-reader (Kindle, Kobo, something else) do you ever use the web browser?
Please feel free to comment with what you use it for and share your favourite sites!
I have a Kindle Paperwhite I keep permanently on airplane mode. When I want to add books, I just plug it in.
I recently bought an Pocketbook Inkpad3 Pro. It has a browser, has wifi and bluetooth. But (as most ereaders) the processor is not beefy enough to use the browser in a decent way.
As an e-reader it shines though, so I am very happy with the reader. Btw, I chose this e-reader because it is not bound to any locked type of ebook. And the 8" format makes it so much better to use instead of most 6" e-readers.
@dajbelshaw Mostly Wikipedia entries. One time I was in a bit of a situation and I used it to connect to my email to send someone a message to come get me. But, 99% of the time it is wiki stuff, dictionaries, weather...
@dajbelshaw I just checked. I have favourites. Apparently I was on reddit worldnews with my ereader at one point.
I have a Kindle Fire and only use Silk browser to download APKs for comic book and mobi readers and a few other apps for standard docs. Otherwise, I use my phone or laptop browser.
@dajbelshaw I have an android phone with an eink screen which I use for everything that isn't videos or image heavy. I find most sites with a light background and good text contrast to be pretty usable, but the the simpler the interface the better. If I'm in the browser I'm reading articles.
