You can add Chrome or Dolphin through GetJar somewhat easily but it does offer proper integration like the silk browser does.
Outside of web browsing though, it is a decent device, especially if you are after content over tech specs

Web browsing works fairly well. It has a web tab that takes you to the built in browser. At the price it might be a good deal especially if she uses it mainly for reading. I should note that I use it to go to my local library and check out Kindle books which then down load to the Fire. As noted above it can be slow and sometimes its not clear if it did not respond to a command or whether it is running but waiting for an external site.
Thanks for the honest answers guys. She's really would only be using it for light light browsing more than likely not even daily. Tasks such as checking the lottery results, online banking or reading up something in Wikipedia. For the price you can pick it up for here in the uk at the moment (£99) I think it still may be worth buying??
As long as don't don't expect to use a lot of tablet app, it will be fine. It is an excellent ereader and web reader. It fits in your hand well and is quite grippy. I don't talk uk pricing, but I think it is a good little tablet to own. I'm like those folks on Star Trek, I use tablets for everything.
Does the App Store have a half decent supply of games? Basic games such as cut the rope and tetris and stuff?
Back on topic though I picked my nexus up for the first time in a few days this morning and realised how much I really missed it.. I think the whole nexus vs iPad mini is really down to preference.. Had I not had an iPad at all I'd of gone straight for the mini and loved it. Personally going from the retina display to then buying a newer apple device with a noticeable lower quality screen would have done my box in.
Yes, there are games...not as many as on iOS...but there are plenty of them.
Before I went to the iPad mini, I did own a Nexus 7. It is a nice device, but could not make me stick to it. The form factor of iPad mini is ideal for on the road use and the apps are ways better. The only point that goes to the Nexus 7 is the document handling as the apps are not sandboxed.
The display and handling of the iPad mini is so much better.

I have both and Nexus 7 is laggy a little still even after project butter and also the screen's touch sensitivity isnt all that great. Plus I find streaming on Apple products much smoother and eaaier than Android.
