Amazon Silkはなぜ作られたのか

Kindle Fireに搭載される予定のAmazon Silkというブラウザ。

Amazon Silkって何ですか?
Amazon Silkは新しい種類のブラウザです。
Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloudのパワーと能力を最大限に引き出すため、0から作られました。

What is Amazon Silk?
Amazon Silk is a new kind of web browser, built from the ground up to leverage the power and capabilities of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud to fundamentally rethink the level of performance and functionality that a browser can provide.

みんな、(これ以上)他のブラウザ(android標準ブラウザ、firefox for android以外)が必要だと思っているのでしょうか?
しかしAmazon Silkは、"クラウドによってサポートされる"ブラウザであり、

Do people really need another browser?
Browser development has really accelerated in recent years, with new entrants emerging and big upgrades from legacy browsers. If we only thought we could deliver “another” browser, we wouldn’t have bothered. In the case of Amazon Silk, however, we are very excited about the potential for this “cloud-powered” browser to truly delight our customers.

Amazon Silkを使うと、不可のかかる作業の大半を、
Amazon Silkローカルのデバイスの能力を超えることができます。
だからといって、Amazon Silkはただの力技コンピューティングではありません。
例えば、"last mile(最後の一歩)"である接続のスループットを極限まで短縮したり、
加えて、Amazon Silkは個々のサイトのトラフィックパターンを学習することができ、

How does “the cloud” make this browser faster?
With Amazon Silk, most of the heavy-lifting is shifted from the processor on your device to our powerful AWS servers. Access to such lightning fast CPUs, expansive memory, and huge network connections allows the performance of Amazon Silk to transcend the capabilities of your local device. Amazon Silk isn’t just about massive computing power, however. Because much of the intelligence of the browser is in the cloud, a number of performance enhancements become possible, including squeezing the utmost throughput out of your “last mile” connection, smart caching both on your device and on our servers, and on-the-fly content optimizations. In addition, Amazon Silk has the ability to learn about traffic patterns on individual sites over time, allowing it to begin fetching the next page that users may wish to visit.
