With that in mind, one xda-developers member has somehow managed to port over the web browser to other Android devices – though, the full listing of compatible devices are not yet disclosed. Nevertheless, the process in getting the Silk browser is relatively streamlined, seeing that you’ll only need to download a package and do some minor tinkering before it’s completely installed.
One of the beauties about the Silk browser, as we know, is that it relies on Amazon’s cloud-based servers to help process the loading of web sites – thus, resulting in lower data consumption. It may not matter all that much for those Android users who are on an unlimited data plan of some sort, but if you’re on a small cap, its compression process will surely save you some precious data each month.
Of course, there are other alternative browser out there that offer the same thing – like the venerable Opera browser.
