Amazon.com has introduced a web version of its Kindle reading application that allows users to sample Kindle editions of books in their Web browser.

Kindle for the Web is an experimental feature in beta that allows users to read samples of Kindle books online. Selected books will have a "read first chapter free" button after which a customer may purchase the full Kindle edition. Full Kindle books will only be able to be read on the Kindle book reader or the Kindle reading applications available for desktops and mobile platforms. The Kindle sample is an alternative to Amazon's "search inside the book" feature which was basically a scanned copy image of the physical book. Kindle for the Web samples are digital editions with enhanced features.

Kindle for the Web will also allow readers to sample Kindle books through other websites and blogs.
