The Amazon Silk Web browser rides on the high-speed and powerful connection offered by the company’s own Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2) service to reduce page load times.
The online retailer apparently boasts on this split browser architecture, which Opera Software ASA already used on its lightweight Opera Mini browser since 2005. Concerning security, the Amazon Silk Web browser stores all the visited sites of any user that are easily accessible to law enforcement agencies by request. Amazon’s servers will act as MITM, or man-in-the-middle, proxy for HTTPS requests, giving the company enough ability to tap on secure communications. Fortunately, the Web browser comes with an offline/off-cloud feature to stop sharing sensitive data to the servers. However, this Amazon Silk functionality is not set to default so most users will likely not notice of having one and use it.
