Amazon Silk

A split-architecture Web browser that taps into Amazon’s Web Services (AWS) cloud computing services to offer a faster, richer browsing experience.  Amazon Silk made its debut on the Kindle Fire tablet computer, which utilizes Silk’s split browsing capabilities to take the processing load off of the Kindle Fire CPU for heavier browser processing tasks.  These tasks are instead sent to Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) cloud servers, which have the RAM and CPU to more efficiently handle heavier processing.
