In one of our articles, we instructed you on how you can root your Kindle Fire tablet. It was a nice tutorial explaining all the steps to get your tablet rooted. Recently, Amazon rolled out a software update for the Kindle Fire tablet which is the 6.2.2 update. This update brings some improvements and new features that users were eagerly waiting for. The remarkable new feature available in this update is full screen browsing in the Silk Browser.
Silk is a web browser that comes pre-installed on this tablet and it gives a pretty amazing web surfing experience. Even though the screen of Kindle Fire was large, the browser was showing webpages only in a small area of the screen. With the roll out of this update, that problem has gone away and now you can surf your favorite websites on full screen.
