+ - Amazon's Kindle Fire 'split' Silk browser benchmar->

Submitted by

MrSeb writes "One of the Kindle Fire’s most hyped features is the Amazon Silk web browser. Amazon took great pains to explain how its idea of a browser was unique on tablets. The powerful Amazon Web Services (AWS) back end is used to compress, cache, and serve content to the Kindle Fire, thus accelerating the page load process. Amazon also suggests that Silk can outsource JavaScript execution to AWS, theoretically speeding up surfing and squeezing more life out of your battery. After some hands-on time with the Kindle Fire, do the claims of a faster web experience hold up?"
