Other Browsers for Fire HD 8

I side loaded the google play store on my fire tablet so I could use the Chrome browser among many other google apps not available in the amazon play store. I couldn't stand the silk default browser. 

Honestly without side loading the google play store and associated apps I like, I wouldn't like the Fire tablet that much.

Thanks Blue Lightning!

I just updated my 4th Gen Fire HDX 8.9" as it is a currently updated generation, runs Alexa with a push and hold of the home button. I have two other 7" HDX that are too old to run Alexa. But with their beautiful HD plus resolutions I wanted to use them for picture frames. One is 16GB and the other is 64GB of storage. I will try to side load the play store on the two 7" which may not because of age or not, and then try the 8.9" current one. I now use the newest 10"HD with Micro SD card slot and hands free Alexa.

I figured you already were familiar with all this. :D

Let me know how it turns out for you!

"No one will ever know all of Word" was a phrase I liked because they all worked on different sections exclusively. No one will ever know all of even one device and its code save a simple one like the original Pi micro running Raspberry Debian.

I had considered looking into it but I don' want to root the 2016 Fire HD 8" or the new Fire HD 10, or the Fire HDX 4th gen which is still supported and does Alexa with a button push like the HD 8.

So I'll give your post a try on the two 7" HDXs.

The picture frame slideshows on Amazon Apps are terrible so now I might be able to do Fotoo from the play store.

I will post back, thanks!
