Amazon launches Kindle Cloud Reader

Topic: 

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.
