UPDATE - 7/13/12. I tested sending web articles to my Kindles and Kindle apps WHILE reading on the Kindle Fire and on my Kindle Touch.
Adding the 7 characters, described below, in front of a web-link or URL worked with any mobile browser on my Kindle Fire as well. Not only does no other e-reader have the web-articles-send feature but it surprised me that it works when I'm browsing the web on my Kindle Fire That is quite a boon. I haven't tried to send an article from an e-Ink Kindle though.
I was less successful when doing this on my smartphone. No problems when using s2r.me/ in a URL from my Kindle Fire browsing though.
One thing I forgot earlier: Besides needing to register with SendToReader, of course, for the free service, you need to sign-in to SendToReader the first time you use the 's2r.me/' with a given browser. I haven't had to sign-in again on the same browser (except when I want to look at my list of articles sent in case I want to re-send something later).
When using it with a different browser the first time for that browser, I had to do the initial sign-in.
SENDtoREADER was very well received by Kindle users, in the many comments written to the original article on it here on March 29, 2011 when I asked readers to try it out.
I noted in an update that "The feedback was extremely positive, with images coming through well, good general layout, and "a great feature: history of your sent articles (linked) in your account at sendtoreader.com with an option to resend. Thanks to phelcq and Elmo [for the mentioned features]."
After that, the author of the program, Sergey Pozhilov, notified us of a "Web to Kindle" browser add-on called "DroidToReader," which allows SendToReader's features to be used on a Kindle Fire. He explained it in his comments to the blog entry of March 11, 2012. It seems this addon, though, is no longer needed. I'd love feedback on how the new feature described below works for you.
Sergey's newest improvement is s2r.me which is a "very simple" addon to a link, he says, which allows you to just enter "s2r.me/" in FRONT of the URL or link to an article you want sent to your Kindle as a personal document.
It would look like: http://s2r.me/[whateverlonglink]
Of course you have to be registered at sendtoreader.com first, for this to work. Be sure to read the original article about SendToReader and comments to it by author Sergey and readers of the blog (the article is linked above in the opening).
Pesonal documents you choose to have sent to your Kindle (rather than file-copied from your computer to your Kindle) go through Amazon servers, where they are kept in the Personal Documents area -- and the access to and reading of these personal docs are sync'd across all your Kindle devices, in the same way that your Kindle books are.
Example: I saw an interesting story from a press release by The Education World on the Kindle Fire for the Classroom, and I put "s2r.me/" in front of the URL or link on that page and, because I'm registered with a Kindle address at SendToReader, this small addition to the link sent that article to the Amazon servers, which placed a copy in my Personal Documents area and then sent me an email to let me know it was there (the email notification took about 5 minutes to arrive).
I opened my Kindle Fire and my Kindle Touch, as well as my Kindle Keyboard. The document was available on all three devices. On the Kindle Fire, it showed up on the Carousel without my doing anything, ready to be downloaded if I want. But if you don't see it, you can click on the 'Docs' category in the top menu.
I never did install the 'DroidtoReader' add-on for Kindle Fire, and yet this new feature worked fine because it's treated by Amazon as a personal document that you want to read on any of your devices, so Amazon makes sure it's available on devices being sync'd. It also arrived on my Samsung Galaxy S2 phone Kindle books archive when I ran the Kindle for Android app to see my books and personal docs, and when I clicked on the title, it downloaded it.
Here's the article on the Kindle Fire in classroom use. If you click on the link, you'll be at the article of course. IF you are already a SendToReader member, just put s2r.me/ in front of the URL for the article (in the location field at the top of the web browser) and this will let SendToReader know you want that article sent to 'me'...
While normally a URL or link has an "http://" to start the link, web browsers put that part in for you these days, so you can just start it with "s2r.me/" in front of the URL.
HOWEVER, if the web browser URL already shows an 'http://' on the address line, then put the s2r.me AFTER the prefacing 'http://' and right in front of the URL/link.
For me, this is a great new feature and I hope others of you will enjoy it too.
