Amazon's Fire Tablets may run a modified version of Android, but they don't use Google's Chrome browser. Instead, every time you surf the web on your Amazon slate, you're using the company's proprietary Silk browser. Like all browsers, Silk keeps a history and stores cookies that you may want to erase.
Here's how to clear your cookies and browsing history on the Amazon Fire Tablet.
