Silk: Amazon's New Browser

Amazon recently released their new Kindle Fire, which is an Android-based 7 inch tablet WiFi device. In addition to the Kindle e-reader app, the Fire includes access to the Amazon AppStore (but not the Android Marketplace), typical utilities (like e-mail access), and a spanking new browser called Silk.

Watch the video below to find out how Amazon leverages cloud processing to speed the performance of Silk and cache pages that you are likely to request (before you even knew you wanted to read them).
