    Hey I just found and tried this silk browser port by TyHi over at xda and got it to work on my triumph. I know I read it a while back but I believe the browser was supposed to make pages render faster or something of that nature. Amazon video FCd on the reboot but the browser seems to work well. I'm not sure if its faster or if its a placebo effect but its definitely not slower than stock. Either way all credit goes to TyHi. Here's the link if anyone else wants to try it.

    I did this last night, worked like a charm. only thing though is there is no need to install the account apk from the guide. Wasn't expecting to like it on my fire but I do. not enough use on my phone as of yet to give a thumbs up or down but been using it so far today without any issues.


    Edit: Been a few days and although the thing is fast as all something something it’s designed for the Fire. Everything is way large for a phone and it includes the soft onscreen keys built into the Kindle. Still love it on my Kindle though. Have made a few attempts at putting the CM7 Browser on my Kindle but so far no go.
