Video: Silk, Amazon’s Revolutionary Cloud-Accelerated Web Browser
The new Amazon “Silk” browser works in the cloud somewhat like many business middle ware computing solutions (Citrix, etc.) do. By placing the heavy iron processing up in the big bandwidth cloud it speeds up the transactions and processing while allowing for thinner bandwidth and increased security to the ultimate edge device.
The web browser on Kindle Fire introduces a radical new paradigm — a “split browser” architecture that accelerates the power of the mobile device hardware by using the computing speed and power of the Amazon Web Services Cloud. The result is a faster web browsing experience, and it’s available exclusively on Kindle Fire.
