Amazon Silk – a next-generation web browser available only on Kindle Fire tablets and phones. Built on a split architecture that divides processing between the client and the Amazon cloud, Silk is designed to create a faster, more responsive mobile browsing experience.

Unlike other browsers, Amazon Silk has the vast capacity of Amazon Web Services (AWS) behind it. Using AWS, Amazon Silk analyzes aggregate web traffic patterns, preprocesses pages, and applies predictive algorithms to determine the fastest way to deliver content to the device.

To minimize latency and page load times, Amazon Silk routes requests through remote proxy servers powered by Amazon EC2. These cloud servers provide high-performance connection speeds and computing power not normally available to a mobile form factor.
