Amazon is reportedly working on a browser and search engine to compete with Bing, Google, and Yahoo. This new browser will be widely available to users.
Amazon has sent out a survey to a select group of people, asking for feedback on desired features for this search engine. The questions indicate that Amazon prioritizes shopping, security, and password synchronization across multiple devices.
The survey asked several questions, but the final one was particularly revealing. Participants were asked to select the feature of a new Amazon desktop or laptop browser that piqued their interest the most. Several options were presented in the survey, including privacy, password synchronization across devices, and shopping-related features.
“We want to understand what our customers value about current web browsers, and what they wish the browsers could do better,” Amazon wrote in the survey. “By participating in this survey, you will contribute to innovations that improve browsing experiences for millions of people around the world.” “Imagine that there is a new desktop/laptop browser available to you, which of these would convince you to download and try it?”. It asked.
It goes on to ask questions like how many hours users spend using a desktop/laptop browser. How often users experience issues with tabs on desktops, and a lot more.
