Amazon’s is gearing up for the release of it’s Kindle Fire Tablet in many ways. One is that this new tablet will support HTML5. This is a big surprise coming from Amazon who has it’s own proprietary operating system. Obviously, Amazon wants their new Fire Tablet users to be able to download anything from anyplace.

In a press release from Amazon they explain: “We’re pleased to announce a wide range of new features and enhancements – including HTML5 support – coming in Kindle Format 8 (KF8). KF8 is the next generation file format for Kindle books – replacing Mobi 7. As showcased on Kindle Fire, KF8 enables publishers to create great-looking books in categories that require rich formatting and design such as children’s picture books, comics and graphic novels, technical and engineering books, and cookbooks. Kindle Format 8 replaces Mobi format and will add over 150 new formatting capabilities, including fixed layouts, nested tables, callouts, sidebars, and Scalable Vector Graphics, opening up more opportunities to create Kindle books that readers will love.
