How to Find the Hidden Browser on the Nook Glowlight Plus

P1040116Barnes & Noble's latest (and probably final) ereader doesn't have quite as many nifty software features as earlier models, but it does still have a few hidden options.

For example, one MobileRead member has discovered that the Glowlight Plus has a hidden web browser (just like previous models). You don't access it quite the same way, but it is there.

Here's how to get to it.

  1. To find the web browser on the Glowlight Plus, first open an ebook.
  2. Select a word, and when the menu pops up on screen select the sharing option. (It looks like a sideways V, or an <).
  3. Choosing the share option will bring up a menu where you can log in to your Facebook account.
  4. You can log in to your account if you want, but if you just want the web browser then look for the very faint print text below the email/password box.
  5. Press the words that say "Help Center".

And now you have the web browser open.

It's not good for much, and it's not easy to access, but it is there. See:

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. I don’t think this is the final ereader from B&N. I think there is room in the market for future Nook devices.
