TOPIC: Web Browser Slow
#1443
Web Browser Slow 5 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0
The web browser is really slow to me using Wi-Wi. It is much slower than my cell phone. It takes forever to load web pages. Is there any way of speeding up the browser? Or, is it something that could be improved via firmware updates? The browser is great other than the slow speed.

The nook web browser is kind of a joke. The nookdevs version (if you hack your nook) is also slow. Both of them are built on the Android browser AFAIK which isn't the problem but... To me the color pages on the eInk screen look SO bad I could care less.

I don't know why they don't force a stylesheet on all pages that makes the background white and the text black.

Mine depends on the access point. At home it is painfully slow even with no security enabled. At work it's zippy! So you might experiment with different locations/access points. I am using an inexpensive Westel DSL router at home that doesn't work with all wireless cards anyway so this will probably spur me on to replace it. I agree, the browser implementation itself is very good and I enjoy reading blogs and articles on it.

I've had it run slow and fast..

anyway, I bought it to read books not browse - so I guess I'm not too concerned about it
