Amazon Silk is a next-gen web browser available on Fire tablets. Unlike other popular mobile web browsers, Silk is built on a split architecture that divides processing between the client and the Amazon cloud. To minimize latency and page load times, Amazon Silk routes requests through remote proxy servers powered by Amazon EC2.

Amazon has recently added Trending section in the Silk browser which will allow its users to get the latest news. This Trending news section is now powered by Microsoft News, a news engine that powers, Microsoft News mobile apps, Edge start page and more. Microsoft News curates news via publishing partnerships, human editors, and AI. Microsoft has partnered with premium publishers like USA Today, The New York Times, FOX News, The Washington Post, The Guardian, and more than 3,000 brands in all major global markets to aggregate the best news, videos, photos and other content and deliver it for free to users across the web, phone and PC.
