Does Safari work on the Kindle?

The kindle 2 sleeker look and better e-ink screen has me wanting. The tipping point would be having access to Safari. So has anyone got Safari library working on the Kindle?

Ive never heard of putting safari on a reader before. That would be kinda cool. Not sure if its possible or not.

I'm trying it now with my Kindle 1 and it's not looking good. I'm not able to get beyond the home page with the browser in either the Advanced or Basic mode.

Is there a mobile version of the site?

Nope, it doesn't work. Would be nice though.

I certainly can't get it to work on the k1. But like Bob said it would be sweet. maybe a firmware update in the future? haha ... yea right. They're scaling back features. not adding new ones in.

I assume you have the browser set to advanced mode and have javascript enabled?

I think they use Flash.. don't they? If that's the case, I doubt it will ever work. The Kindle browser is just basic HTML/Javascript support.

Ah... of course you did. Missed that.

I was pretty sure I tried this quite a while back. A user even gave the there credentials to test and I couldn't log in.

Anyone tried this on an iPhone/iPod Touch? I know it doesn't support flash either, but I hear they are working on it.

Amazon has the web browser under the experimental features. Hopefully they upgraded the web browser for the kindle 2.

Are you confusing "Run Safari" with use the Apple Safari browser? The tread title is a bit misleading if you don't know that Safari is an online book shelf that allows you to access O'Riley and other books via a web browser.

I doubt amazon did much to the build in browser. If they did it would be on the K1 now too.

I meant the O'Reilly online book shelf. I forgot that Safari is also a web browser on the mac.
I guess the chance of Amazon enhancing the built in web browser to handle rendering more complex websites is pretty slim.

As a potential publisher on kindle, I was very frustrated when I registered and was supposed to be led to the dashboard where uploads begin, but I kept being sent back to the sign in page. spent hours searching for an answer. Turned out Safari Browser was the problem. When I tried on Firefox, not problem.
