Kindle Cloud Reader now supports Firefox browser

The HTML5-based web app that is Amazon's Kindle Cloud Reader is now available for Mozilla's Firefox browser. The web app lets users access their Kindle e-books , adding to the already avaialable Chrome and Safari versions. It can now be viewed for all of these supporting browsers, as well as Safari for the iPad.

Support requires Firefox 6 or newer for the Mac, Windows or Linux, and it can optionally be saved for offline use to read their books online or offline. The app will always sync Kindle libraries to see bookmarks, existing notes, and highlights. Cloud Reader also gives access to the store with a touch-optimized interface.

Firefox has around 450 million worldwide users and is still often second only to Internet Explorer online. The move significantly increases the Kindle web app's reach and may also help with compatibility on other browsers, primarily those that use Firefox's Gecko engine.
