Amazon Silk

Just heard that Amazon is the newest entry into the browser war; they are coming up with a web-based browser called Silk. From what I could understand, Silk would use cloud computing to enable faster searches; all cookies will be stored in a centralised server with a third-party. Enticing? I don’t think so.

However, one group of people to whom this would be heaven-sent news are net law-enforcement officials. Having proof that an individual was being unlawful via accessing cookies which cannot be deleted is tempting indeed. Making me believe that my privacy is not going to be as private as the big bosses would have me understand.
