Guess what? Kindle Cloud Reader is making its way onto another platform, and it's a major one. Amazon's HTML5-based Kindle web app has just gained native support for Mozilla Firefox, enabling those users tap into their Kindle book library on a browser they're already familiar with.

To start reading, go to http://read.amazon.com using Chrome, Safari on iPad, Safari on desktop and now Mozilla Firefox. Kindle Cloud Reader is the latest Kindle reading application and leverages HTML5. With Kindle Cloud Reader, customers can read Kindle books instantly using only their web browser - online or offline - with no downloading or installation required. As with all Kindle apps, Kindle Cloud Reader automatically synchronizes your Kindle library, as well as your last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights for all of your Kindle books, no matter how you choose to read them. To make it easy and seamless to discover new books, Kindle Cloud Reader includes an integrated, touch optimized store, allowing customers one click access to a vast selection of books.


Kindle Cloud Reader is available for Safari on iPad, Safari on desktop, Chrome and, starting today, Mozilla Firefox 6 and above. Kindle Cloud Reader on the iPad is optimized for the size and unique touch interface of iPad. Without even leaving the app, customers can start shopping in the Kindle Store and will find a unique and immersive shopping experience built specifically for iPad's Safari browser.

Very nice, I am glad to see that HTML 5 is finally starting to take shape and start to be used. I can't wait for the day I can get rid of all these extra plugins... Plugins suck I want native support.
