One of the most appealing features of the Amazon Kindle Fire is the Silk browser because it is supposed to use Amazon’s cloud infrastructure to deliver a faster and potentially better browsing experience. Well, those wonderful tinkerers have ported the Silk browser to some other Android devices.
This was first reported by Electronista and it says that the XDA developer TyHi created the working port. You can download the packed file here and then you have to copy it over to your device and then unpack it with the appropriate applications.
I think this is cool because it shows the zeal of the Android developer community but I’ve been quite underwhelmed with the Silk browser on my Kindle Fire so far. It was supposed to be a quicker browser experience but I haven’t noticed it being noticeably better than most modern browsers and the touch response has been off for me. Luckily, it will only get better as more and more people use it, so if you’re adventurous, go ahead and try it out on your non-Fire today and let us know what you think.
