Amazon Silk – Amazon’s Theories Sound Good

Web browsers, as any other thing on our planet, need modernization, whether it be architectural modernization or radical dominance by a new product which completely wipes out any and all existing Web browsers. To take things easier and look at the modern scenario, there seems to be a need to stop and take a step back; to take a fundamentally new look at Web browsers and consider how they would be demarcated in terms of the cloud.

Taking a close look at the Web browsers of our time, almost all of them are entirely based on outdated designs from the mid-1990s, and back then, when the Web was much simpler, people did not have mobile devices, and big data had not been heard of. Today, two different viewpoints in the Web browsing industry exist. One perspective is of desktop computer users and the other perspective is of the mobile device users; often both these users are condensed into a single consumer who is agonizingly oscillating back and forth between the performances of these two species. Speaking in terms of Web browsing, what users really care about is having a page for which they do not have to wait to load. The experience of Web browsing on a mobile device makes users think that they have gone back in time to when browsing speeds were painfully limited.

Powerful desktop computers, by their very nature, are destined to process huge amounts of information. On the other hand, mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones need help, and as recommended by Amazon, this help can come from the cloud. The big task a cloud helps accomplish is that it does all the processing and handling of heavy data at its own end, while it just sends down the final product to the Web browser associated with it.

The Amazon Silk browser optimizes the Web browser by carefully analyzing the limitations of the user’s system. Limitations of the user can be thought of as screen size, pixel depth, or the processing speed of the device. Allying all these assets into one equation, and then giving an optimal result, is what a cloud helps Amazon Silk accomplish.

At the time of writing, Amazon Silk looks like the best Web browsing solution for the masses – an answer for most users facing the problem of higher load times and greater lag when using their mobile devices. Even though split-browser architecture is not new in the technology arena, Amazon does surround its users with an air of innovation.
