It boasts a great Web browser, and its curated Android app store includes most of the big must-have apps (such as Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu). The Fire has an ultra-affordable price tag, and the screen quality is exceptional for the price." - CNET " The Fire gives me the features I want at a price point thats less than half of the iPad 2. I can check my email, browse the Internet, maybe play a few games, most importantly, I can read magazines in color on a Kindle." - Gizmodo " The Fire is a marvelous device." - Chicago Sun Times " Amazon’s Kindle Fire is likely to be the first successful tablet not sold by Apple, and there are several good reasons for it: the low price of $199, the convenient, portable size of 7 inches, and a rich catalog of books, movies and music offered through Amazon’s Web-based services." - Ars Technica

Revolutionary Cloud-Accelerated “Split Browser”Modern websites arecomplex. A typical webpage requires 80 filesserved from 13 differentdomains. This takes aregular browserhundreds of round trips,and adds seconds topage load times.Amazon Silk is differentin a radical new way.When you use Silk,without thinking about itor doing anythingexplicit, you’re calling onthe computing speed and power of the Amazon Web Services cloud (AWS). Weve refactored andrebuilt the browser software stack to push pieces of the computation into the AWS cloud. This lets Silkdo more work, more quickly, and all at once. We call this “split browser” architecture.Silk browser software resides both on Kindle Fire and on the massive server fleet that comprises theAmazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). With each page request, Silk dynamically determines adivision of labor between the mobile hardware and Amazon EC2 (i.e. which browser sub-componentsrun where) that takes into consideration factors like network conditions, page complexity and thelocation of any cached content.Shorter Transit TimesAmazon EC2 is always connected to the backbone of the Internet where round-trip latency is 5milliseconds or less to most web sites rather than the 100 milliseconds that’s typical over wirelessconnections. AWS also has peering relationships with major internet service providers, and many topsites are hosted on EC2. This means that many web requests will never leave the extendedinfrastructure of AWS, reducing transit times to only a few milliseconds.Computing Power in the CloudEC2 servers have massive computational power. On EC2, available CPU, storage, and availablememory can be orders of magnitudes larger than on mobile devices. Silk uses the power and speed ofthe EC2 server fleet to retrieve all of the components of a website simultaneously, and delivers themto Kindle Fire in a single, fast stream. Transferring computing-intensive tasks to EC2 helps to conserveyour Kindle Fire battery life.Persistent ConnectionsA typical web request begins with resolving the domain names associated with the server andestablishing a TCP connection to issue the http request. Establishing TCP connections for each requestconsumes time and resources that slow down traditional browsers. Silk keeps a persistent connectionopen to the backend server on the AWS cloud so that there is always a connection at the ready tostart loading the next page. In addition, the Silk backend server keeps persistent connections open to
the top sites on the web. This approach further reduces latency that would otherwise result fromconstantly establishing connections. Further, the connection between Silk and the backendinfrastructure uses a pipelined, multiplexing protocol that can send all the content over a singleconnection.Page IndexesTraditional browsers must wait to receive the HTML file in order to begin downloading the other pageassets. Silk is different because it learns these page characteristics automatically by aggregating theresults of millions of page loads and maintaining this knowledge on EC2. While another browser mightstill be setting up a connection with the host server, Silk has already pushed content that it knows isassociated with the page to Kindle Fire before the site has even instructed the browser where to findit.Machine LearningFinally, Silk leverages the collaborative filtering techniques and machine learning algorithms Amazonhas built over the last 15 years to power features such as “customers who bought this also bought…”As Silk serves up millions of page views every day, it learns more about the individual sites it rendersand where users go next. By observing the aggregate traffic patterns on various web sites, it refinesits heuristics, allowing for accurate predictions of the next page request. For example, Silk mightobserve that 85 percent of visitors to a leading news site next click on that site’s top headline. Withthat knowledge, EC2 and Silk together make intelligent decisions about pre-pushing content to theKindle Fire. As a result, the next page a Kindle Fire customer is likely to visit will already be availablelocally in the device cache, enabling instant rendering to the screen.Kindle Fire, Full Color 7" Multi-touch Display, Wi-Fi
