I have never used a kindle so I can not tell you. But I like the nook's browser quite a bit, especially when you use the zoom out feature so you can view the whole width of a page and you use the touch screen to scroll down. It would be nice to able change the orientation of the browser to landscape also the box that appears on the e-ink screen needs to have a much thinner border so that it does not cover up words and you have to use the touch scroll to move it just to keep reading. Not a huge deal, just a slight annoyance.

Maybe in the next verion of the browser it will give you the option when you come upon a book in a nook supported file format, like epub, that you could add it to your library.
