How to open web browser on KF Emulator?

How to open web browser on KF Emulator? In the Home screen of my Kindle Fire HD 7(3rd Gen) emulator, I can not find a Web icon in Apps list. And there are only Home, Back, Task and Search button on the bottom of Home screen. Where to tap to start the default web browser? Do I have to install a web browser, such as Silk, by myself at first? If yes, where to download Silk browser from Amazon official web site? I am a freshman for Kindle Fire and its emulator. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks all.

I just have read the Kindle_Fire_Users_Guide.pdf. I actually couldn't find the Web icon or title to tap on Home screen of my emulator. Is it because that the emulator has not any internet connection? At the bottom of Home screen, there are 4 icons ( Home, Back, Menu and Search ) on the Options bar.

The Silk browser is currently not available on the emulator. Alternatively, you can launch the generic Android browser with ADB: adb shell am start -n com.android.browser/.BrowserActivity

Yes, I do launch the generic browser with command you told. And I can browse web on my emulator now. But it is not convenient to launch a web browser with this means. Do you know the official web address that I can download Silk from? Thank you very much!
