Amazon launches 'Internet' a lite web browser for Android users in India

It occupies very less space (2Mb) as compared to other browsers like chrome (21 Mb), Opera (14.7 Mb), and Uc browser (37 Mb). The app web live in March but rather went unnoticed until Techcrunch spotted it. The app also has less than 1000 installs in Google Play. The Internet is restricted to emerging markets like India wherein there are still areas with limited internet accessibility. This might be the reason for Amazon not making any major announcement regarding the app.


The app packs exciting features like privacy tabs similar to Incognito of chrome in a desktop that doesn’t store browser history. In addition, it also features automatic full-screen mode and integrated news reader, which appears on the homepage. The newsreader contains up to date cricket news and other major headlines and entertainment that is sourced from top websites. Looking to download from Google Play?
