Amazon Sends Kindle to the Cloud

Over the past few years Amazon has created Kindle reading software for just about every electronic device in existence. Today, they announced they were taking the Kindle to the cloud with their HTML5 based reader.  Now anyone running Google’s Chrome, Apple’s Safari on Windows or Mac OSX or Apple’s Mobile Safari on the iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone can forgo having to download an app and just go to to access their personal libraries. Support for Internet Explorer, Firefox and many other mobile browsers is in the works as well. The new version of the reader was seen as a response to Apple Computer, Inc. forcing Amazon, and others, to remove access to their online bookstore from Apps distributed through the Apple App Store.
