eBook created in the Kindle Format 8 (KF8), Amazon's successor to the .AZW format; supports newer features such as HTML5 and CSS3 support as well as many other formatting capabilities; often includes DRM protection; used as the download format for newer Amazon eBooks.

KF8 eBooks can be created with KindleGen, a free command line tool provided by Amazon. AZW3 files can be previewed with Kindle Previewer, a Kindle software simulator.
