Barnes & Noble launches Nook for Web browser-based eReader

Barnes & Noble has launched Nook for Web, a browser-based eReader that the company claims works in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari for the PC and Mac. Nook for Web allows users to preview the first 10-15 pages of most eBooks for free; the eBook can then be purchased by clicking a button in the eReader. Nook for Web has one- and two-page displays, and a choice of eight fonts and eight point sizes. It also has a slider for navigating through eBooks, and a drop-down table of contents. However, it doesn't have any way to search within a book. In addition, Nook for Web doesn't support B&N's Nook Kids titles or graphic novels. Those can only be read on the Nook Tablet, Nook Color, and for some titles, B&N's iPad app.
