  1. I have a lot of trouble with Facebook Mobile on the Kindle. It is a bit of a challenge to get logged in (try the regular HTTP login — that seems to work best) and then it pops you back ot the login page every time you try to type anything in (a comment, status message, etc.) I am guessing there is some kind of cookie issue. For just browsing, it is acceptable.

  2. I think I notice a pattern in that websites that do redirects upon logging in fail. Maybe the kindle browser can’t handle the cookie management in this situation. It’s very, very annoying!

    • I confirmed that it is indeed kindle’s lack of handling cookies during a redirect :-( I proved it by installing a webmail program called Telaen, which offers two options: 1) use location redirect, e.g., Location: header or 2) javascript.location redirect. Kindle fails using option 1, but succeeds with option 2.

  3. this website is perfect for tracking flights for all airlines. i use it everyday at work to track our flight. and it works great on the kindle and other mobile devices
