Kindle browser v Google Analytics

I ran a short test to see how Google Analytics registers the Amazon Kindle web browser.

This is the info I got back:

Browser: Safari
Operating System: Linux
Colours: 32-bit
Screen Resolution: 600 x 706 pixels
Flash Version: (not set)
Java support: No

The colour range is a bit confusing since the Kindle uses a monochrome e-ink screen but I guess it represents the incredible number of greys that it can display.

I’m taking the value for “Flash Version” to mean that there is no Flash support.

Aside from the “colours” value, these results are unsurprising but should give us something to hook a browser/platform detect on to.
