Amazon Launches an Android Web Browser
Amazon has officially joined the ever-growing group of companies offering Android browsers with its very own so-called “Internet” app, now available for users in India.
While Amazon Internet isn’t supposed to be as advanced as other browsers on Android, it comes with the essential feature package and pays particular focus to how much space it eats up on your device.
Amazon says its Android browser is “extra small” because it weighs in just 2.4 MB, which means your space is saved “for videos, music, apps, and everything else.”
While it lacks functionality like add-on and extensions, Amazon Internet comes with a private mode to browse the Internet without leaving any trace behind. “It doesn’t ask for extra permissions or collect your private data like other browsers.”
And since it’s particularly aimed at the Indian market, Amazon’s browser also includes a news module with the focus on topics like cricket highlighted right on the home page.
