Have you checked out Amazon’s Kindle Cloud Reader yet? If you actually answered in the negative, then you might want to know that Amazon’s HTML5-fueled Web app that will cater for the reading of e-books is now ready to rock and roll on Firefox – which means the number of compatible browsers with the Kindle Cloud Reader now stands at four, especially when you take into consideration Safari which comes in two different versions – one for the iPad, while the other is for the desktop.
The Kindle Cloud Reader web app was originally introduced for Safari and Chrome three months ago (that would be August just in case your mental calendar is not working), and this latest introduction would make your Kindle e-book library all the more accessible, as well as opening up a path for Amazon to actually circumvent Apple’s controversial in-app purchase fees. Since the Kindle Cloud Reader is a natural extension of Amazon’s “Buy Once, Read Everywhere” mission, it is a no-brainer to support one of the most popular browsers on the market at the moment.
I do wonder why has Internet Explorer been left out of the picture even until now, never mind the fact that their market share is slowly but surely eroding in the face of competition. Still, their share is sizeable enough – more than half, actually, so to have Kindle Cloud Reader on Internet Explorer is definitely something worth looking into.
