List of Best Browsers for Firestick

Most browsers are not very responsive with a firestick. So, just to make the task a little easier for you, below I have shared the top 5 best firestick browsers that you should definitely try.

There are some browsers such as Google Chrome that are not available on the Amazon app store, so in that case, you need to sideload such browsers. Later in the article, I shared the way how to sideload browsers on firestick.

Now let’s begin with our list of best firestick browsers in 2023.

  1. Amazon Silk

This is the easiest browser that I found smooth to operate. This web browser has been designed to work for Fire TV devices. Also, installing it on other devices like Kindle works well for searching for the content of your interest.

This web browser also provides the option to make a list of bookmarks, the same as other browsers. We can organize the bookmarks on Amazon Silk.

What I noticed as the main feature of Amazon Silk is it maintains privacy in the browsing history. Nobody can detect what you have searched previously.

This will not make you remain stuck to one browser. You can easily set the other browser as your default browser.


  • Very convenient to use
  • Personalized Bookmarks option
  • Suggests trending stuff as per your interest in search history


  • Syncing devices is not available
  • The casting of tabs option is not available
  1. Mozilla Firefox

Firefox is one of the most widely used web browsers. After Google Chrome, it became the second most popular on the list. It can also be conveniently used on the Amazon Fire TV. You can use social media platforms and conduct research for your website as well.

Watching videos on YouTube in Mozilla Firefox is another favorite task of mine in my free time. Its best feature is its design. It has a fast and customizable design interface. It provides good support standards.


  • Convenient for Web research
  • Pin the websites
  • You can use tabs on your gadgets


  • It doesn’t has vast customizing options
  1. Opera

Best browsers for firestick

For Firestick, Opera is the most suitable and likely to be used. I feel the strong reason is it can upload heavy videos in a short time. Also, it can compress videos. The VPN built-in system provides the facility for its users to load multiple pages quickly. This is one of the most recommended browsers to use for Firestick.

If I talk about its features, then its facility to block ads that are unwanted really impressed me. Its video compressing feature, smooth user interface, and desired news feeds are other valuable components for using Firestick.


  • It consumes low RAM which is around 600 MB.
  • Adding bookmarks to the home screen
  • Fast loading of pages 


  • Simple users may find it difficult to understand
  • IP masking areas are limited
  1. TV Bro

Best browsers for firestick

For smart televisions, the TV Bro browser is wonderful. For Fire TV, many users have found this to be the best one. I have checked its reviews on Reddit, and users agree with its features and lovely interface. More than 100,000 people have downloaded this app.

Users of smart TVs have found trouble using other apps on their devices. Those are not compatible with what I can say here, and also the lack of features may be the other reason.

If you are using the TV Bro, then you don’t have to worry. The reason is that this browser is all set to work with intelligent TV remotes. This can work with smart TV remotes, which makes this more compatible.


  • In-built Download manager
  • Easily Accessible History
  • Blocking the unwanted ads
  • Easy User Agent Support
  • Voice search Support


  • Data will remain and can’t be removed
  1. Glance Browser

Best browsers for firestick

This web browser is not popular for desktop or mobile browsers. If talk about Amazon Kindle Fire being used in these tablets.

Glance web browser has a strong interface. It has the capacity to replace Amazon Silk. This capability makes it more interesting. This browser is used as the browser’s search engine in WebView.

This interface is designed for the user’s convenience. It provides a very easy-to-use interface. This browser is the best browser for Firestick that can be downloaded easily. 


  • Ad-free
  • Compatible with the Smart TV
  • Can Search Widget
  • Fast to access
  • User Interface is easy to understand


  • Absence of VPN
  • Lacks the browser extensions

The other good browsers are UC browser which provides the features of customizing. This gives the features like a built-in-voice control system, night mode, multi-touch capability, and instant sharing on social media platform features. But on the other hand, it does not provide security assurance to the users. IT always gives so many ads in the browser.
