Amazon has quietly launched a new web app called Kindle Cloud Reader that allows Chrome and Safari users to access their Kindle eBooks through their browsers.
The app lets users read and buy books online. The app can also store a local copy of books using HTML5’s local storage feature, so users can keep reading even if they lose their Internet connection.
Amazon says that the app officially supports Chrome and Safari. This means it works on PCs, Macs, Linux, and even Chromebooks. This also means that it works on the iPad. In fact, Amazon plays that up on their site.
