I've been using the Dolphin Browser for quite some time on my KF HD 8.9 as I've always found it faster than Silk. But Dolphin keeps crashing, so I switched back to Silk today to give it another try, and it is lightening fast downloading web pages. I have accellerated page mode "on".

I don't know if Silk was updated since I last ran it, but it's a pleasure to use now.

Yes, Silk has been steadily improving since the first release. I have Dolphin as a back up on both my 2012 HD and my new HDX, but it's been a long time since I've used it.

Signalman: I used both Dolphin and Maxthon quite a bit with my HD7 and now with my 8.9. The only time I have trouble with Silk is when I have another browser installed so I don't do that any more. I really like the Maxthon but it doesn't let me exit a YouTube video without going back to my home page.

Yup! The updated Silk is great. Deleted Dolphin and Chrome could use some add ons...hint hint
