Test a Site for me?: Safaribooksonline.com

Could someone with a Kindle test the readability of a book through this site:

www.safaribooksonline.com

I have seen how it renders on the Iliad, was wondering if the Kindle did it better.

Is there anything FREE I could test for you? I don't really want to sign up at their web site. Do they have a free book one can test with before committing to anything?

Did they change something? I thought with this service you had to read the books using a browser?

you should be able to just click on a start reading link

try my.safaribooksonline.com There should be titles there and you can just click through to start reading.

You do read books through a browser, but the kindle has the browser, so i wanted to see how they worked with the device (as Amazon's computer book offerings are lacking).

Ah... I see what you mean... I thought you were saying that there was now a way to download their books. I'll give it a try when I get home to my Kindle.

I appreciate that, thank you!

I would love it if safari had a built in application for the kindle (or Iliad) I think the IT field would quickly adopt it if there was some way to constantly reference all the books they have available

They want me to sign up and give them my credit card just to get a test account. Sorry. If you want to PM me your credentials I will give it a try, then you can later change your password.
