What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

The mobile version looks ugly, half of the entries have a black background (don't know why, seems random) which makes them so hard to read.

Is there any way to work around it?

Petition Amazon to stop including half-baked rendering engines in its products that it disingenuously calls web browsers? –  user149432 Oct 30 '11 at 3:22

I would bet that these are the highlighted interesting questions, and since Kindle does only two colors (i.e. black and white), it can't do a nice highlight and did its best with what it could. –  waiwai933 Oct 30 '11 at 3:27

You can take screenshots with ShiftAlt+G, a GIF will show up in your documents folder.

I've also tried browsing Stack Overflow from the Kindle before. The non-mobile version is too heavy to use nicely. It's also a chore to reach the link you want using the four-way navigation thing, when the page is loaded with links. The mobile version would probably be adequate if it weren't for this.

I don't browse much of a variety of sites from the Kindle, but I can't remember seeing this bug before.
