Amazon's Kindle Cloud Reader, the HTML5 app that was launched for Chrome and Safari in August, is now available for Firefox.
When Kindle Cloud Reader was originally launched it seemed rather odd that Firefox was missing from the line up given that the beta of its long awaited Web App had supported Firefox. However, there was the obvious rationale of launching Cloud Reader as quickly as possible as a means of giving its iPhone users access to Kindle after Amazon had withdrawn the Kindle iPhone app.
Now Mozilla Firefox, in version 6 or later, has been added to the lineup of supported browsers. The Cloud Reader is a web-based app that lets Kindle users access, organize and add to their existing Kindle libraries without downloading any software to the desktop. Your library will be automatically synced between the Reader and the rest of your Kindle apps and devices, and you can make new purchases seamlessly with one-click access to the Kindle Store.
So the only question is, why has it taken three months for Amazon to roll out a Firefox version?
