Amazon launches Kindle Cloud Reader

Amazon today launched a Web-based Kindle reading app that works on Google's Chrome browser and Apple's Safari browser.

Kindle Cloud Reader uses the HTML5 web standard to let you read books from your Kindle library both online or offline. In its announcement, Amazon says no installation is required. But in trying out the reader on Chrome, I did have to click a few times in a process that basically lets it show up as an app.

thanks for the post

FYI

While the original intent could have been to sidestep Apple and hedge against Google, Amazon Cloud Reader has much bigger potential. Here's my take on it
