OK, this started out mostly for my own amusement but it worked so I thought I would put this out there for anyone who wants to mess with it.

This is the Amazon Browser (Silk / Cloud9) that just shipped on the Kindle Fire. Someone asked if it could be ported so I gave it a shot. Just a few files to get it working.
BUT....to be more reasonable for use on a phone I think it needs some graphics tweaking as this was intended for a 7" tablet.
Something to tinker with if someone wants to...flash the file in recovery or you can extract and push the files as well. There are (2) apps and a few lib files. I only tested this on my Tbolt running BAMF Forever, so beyond that I can't guarantee anything but "in theory" it should work on just about any android rom since it's dependencies are the lib files.
I would double check and make sure you don't have any of these libs already as overwriting them could cause issues, but likely they don't already exist.

I didn't notice anything special except tabs at top were kind of nice.

BUT, I tried to go back to my regular browser and getting fc all time. Tried everything except reinstalling ROM.
Didn't want to install Rom so I downloaded dolphin browser to use otherwise I can't get on net.

that was a poor attempt at a joke...opera is not my cup of tea. Dolphin browser seems to load a huge variety of pages but is not the most stable or snappiest...miren browser is pretty good, boat browser can be very good, In the end i wind up using stock aosp or stock miui browser usually though...
