Good news for the Amazon Fire TV customers. The e-commerce giant introduced a web browsing feature on Amazon Fire TV. Now users can access the service through Mozilla Firefox and Amazon Silk in over 100 countries. The browsers can easily be downloaded from the Fire TV and the users can begin browsing the web immediately.

More than 500,000 movies, TV episodes, and tens of thousands of apps, channels and Alexa skills have already been made accessible to Fire TV customers. As a result of the latest update, the Fire TV users can access the World Wide Web including popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, and Reddit. Not only that the new service offers local and international news sites, video sharing services, cloud photo sites, and other social news, sports, and entertainment content.

With full web browsers on Fire TV, our customers’ entertainment and information options are greatly expanded. We want to make it easy for customers to access the Web from the comfort of their couch. – Marc Whitten, Vice President, Amazon Fire TV and Appstore
