Amazon launches its own lite browser for Android

Who does not run, flies. The creation of lite versions of massive-use applications became a priority for developers, who ended up seeing third parties take the credits. Amazon solved this problem by launching its own minimal resource-consuming browser, although we do not yet know if this is the case for a simple experiment to prepare for a global launch, as this app is currently only available in India. At least officially, since through Uptodown we can already download and install via APK.

The browser weighs 2.4MB, incorporating the minimum and indispensable that we need in a tool of these characteristics. That is, multiple tabs, incognito navigation, bookmark system, history and download management. The different thing is that it has its own start screen where we will have the search engine itself (being able to choose between Bing and Google), eight direct accesses to the sites we visit most and a section with news, which for now is focused on the Indian public, as it was to be expected.

Although there are other equally interesting variants like Firefox Rocket and Opera Mini, we may have among us the embryo of a lightweight browser to be taken into account in the coming months. Only time will tell. For now we can download without any kind of geographical limitation.
