HTML5 Support

Amazon Silk provides broad support for the emerging HTML5 standard and for related media features. In this section of the Silk Developer Guide, you'll find information on feature support across Silk versions, and examples of supported features and APIs. Though the documentation aims to be comprehensive, the feature set described here is not all-inclusive. Look for HTML5 support to expand and improve as Silk evolves.

You can easily identify what HTML5 features are supported on your version of Silk. On your device, go to HTML5Test.


Feature support for Silk generation 1 differs significantly from generation 2 and 3. In general, feature support for Silk generation 1 is the same as that for Android WebView 2.3.
