To provide users with Internet surfing capabilities, the Kindle Fire comes pre-installed with the Silk Web browser. Developed by Amazon exclusively for the platform, it uses split architecture to divide webpage processing tasks between the tablet and Amazon's cloud servers to speed up page loading times and improve responsiveness.
Other browsers can also be found on the Amazon Android App Store should users find Silk not quite to their liking. However, despite receiving the Amazon seal of approval, experts note that some third-party browsers require fiddling with settings and dabbling in complicated installation procedures that might be especially daunting to inexperienced users. Popular third-party browsers include Dolphin, Opera and Firefox Mobile.
