What about handling secure (https) connections?
We will establish a secure connection from the cloud to the site owner on your behalf for page requests of sites using SSL (e.g. https://siteaddress.com).
Amazon Silk will facilitate a direct connection between your device and that site. Any security provided by these particular sites to their users would still exist.
I’m really not convinced by this statement. Google, Facebook, and Amazon are all in the same game of knowing what their users are doing, seeing, reading, buying and searching for. The fact that Amazon will be making secure https connections on MY BEHALF is enough to keep me off the browser despite the speed gains and mobile optimizations.
