Amazon Silk

Amazon Silk is a web browser developed by Amazon. It was first released for Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet on September 28, 2011. The browser uses Amazon's own servers to pre-process and compress web pages before sending them to the device, thereby reducing data usage and loading times.

Silk is based on the open-source Chromium project and uses the Blink layout engine. It has a number of unique features, including Amazon's "split browser" architecture which uses Amazon's servers to render web pages and deliver them to the device. This architecture is designed to improve web page loading times by reducing the amount of data that needs to be downloaded to the device.

Silk is available for a number of Amazon devices, including the Kindle Fire, Fire HD, and Fire HDX.

The Amazon Silk web browser is so named because of the unique way it renders web pages. Rather than loading web pages directly from the server, Silk uses a technique called splitting which breaks web pages down into small pieces and then loads them in parallel from both the server and Amazon's cloud infrastructure. This results in web pages loading much faster than with traditional web browsers. Does Amazon Silk track your browsing history? Yes, Amazon Silk tracks your browsing history.
