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.

Abaco uses webfs presents a file system interface to the parsing and retrieving of URLs and also handles cookies. Abaco uses it to fetch URLs, to find their content type and to get the actual URL if a redirection has occurred.

Abaco is written completely in C and the program source is small, currently con­ sists of less than eight thousand lines of code. It avoids code duplication by interacting with set of existing Plan 9 utilities and a file server. Abaco is constructed by a set of corroutines, two threads and two processes.
There is a thread for mouse and another for the keyboard. There is also a process that awaits for messages from the plumber and another process used as a timer. These coroutines use channels to communicate with each other.

Gitit – an open source wiki program written in Haskell.

It uses Happstack for the web server and pandoc for markup processing. Pages and uploaded files are stored in a git, darcs, or mercurial repository and may be modified either by using the VCS’s command-line tools or through the wiki’s web interface.

By default, pandoc’s extended version of markdown is used as a markup language, but reStructuredText, LaTeX, HTML, DocBook, or Emacs Org-mode markup can also be used. Pages can be exported in a number of different formats, including LaTeX, RTF, OpenOffice ODT, and MediaWiki markup. Gitit can be configured to display TeX math (using texmath) and highlighted source code (using highlighting-kate).

Other features include:
– plugins: dynamically loaded page transformations written in Haskell
– categories
– TeX math
– syntax highlighting of source code files and code snippets (using highlighting-kate)
– caching
– Atom feeds (site-wide and per-page)
– a library, “Network.Gitit”, that makes it simple to include a gitit wiki in any happstack application

The project developer is John MacFarlane.
