You snooze, you lose. The creation of lite versions of apps for the masses has become a priority of developers, who have realized that third parties will happily take a piece of the pie if they’re not on top of it. Amazon has evened the playing field in this sense, launching its own lightweight browser. Although at the moment we don’t know whether or not it’s a simple experiment preparing for a global release, since this app is only available in India for now. Officially, anyways. But you can already download and install it via APK on Uptodown with no geographic limitations.
The browser takes up only 2.4MB, offering only the minimum, essential features necessary in a tool like it. Multiple tabs, incognito browsing, bookmarks, history, and download management. The only thing noteworthy is the fact that it has its own home screen with an integrated search bar (you can choose between Bing or Google), eight shortcuts to your most visited sites, and a news section which is currently focused on users in India, as to be expected.
Although there are other, equally interesting options like Firefox Rocket and Opera Mini, we just might have before us the beginnings of a lightweight browser to keep in mind over the next few months. Only time will tell. For now, you can download it without any type of geographic restrictions if you’re curious to check it out.
