try hands on instapaper text, readable & clearly, instapaper is simple to use,  clearly is great, readable requires lots of tinkering, you can apply the bookmarklet to pad or phone chrome, here is screen cut of my readable setting

i achieved 3 goals for my kindle fire. 1. get it rooted, and android market is accessible. 2. enable 3rd party keyboard, so i can use Chinese input. 3. vpn is not working on kindle fire, but i find out a workaround, to use vpn based router. now i am satisfied with my kindle fire, portable, better resolution than ipad2, powerful and speedy. it's worth the $. 199.

it's true that you can set up vpn on a router, then connect your kindle fire to the router thru wifi, then you can visit facebook, youtube etc. i use tplink, model#TL-WR703N.
step#1: link TL-WR703N to LAN port of another router
step#2: ensure IP range for TL-WR703N is different from another route, i use 172.168.1.1.
step#3: pls use wireless router model (there is 3g route, Access point mode)
step#4: connect your pc or kindle fire to TL-WR703N in auto way, or dynamic IP.
step#5: ensure you pc or kindle fire connect to internet.
step#6: in one of setting (try it out yourself, i can't recall exact menu), pls select L2TP,, then enter vpn server, user name & password.
step#7: you may need to re-start your router, then you are OK to go.

attached is my mini router, i think it's great as it's powerful & in compact size.

you can use ucweb hd for kindle fire. in order to boost up browsing speed of buildin browser,pls try following, turn off page loading acceleration(So called silk), Turn off addin( flash), use optimization for mobile,not desktop. hope this help. so far i am happy with my kindle fire. the only pain in the ass is vpn is disabled, and i haven't figure out a workaround.

this post is from my kindle fire. 看, 中文输入没问题, 我用的是谷歌拼音。1. i get my kindle fire rooted. 2. android market ia accessible. so i can side load (install) any software i like, no restrictions. 3. google pinyin is selected as my default keyboard. 3. i use go launcher ex to view all app hidden by amazon, e.g android market. i assume amazon don't like you to use it.
