Skyfire has launched the latest version of their browser for Google’s Android OS, Skyfire 2.0 which is a flash enabled smartphone browser, and its main feature is support for playback of flash videos.
What Skyfire does is convert Flash videos into HTML5, meaning you can watch all the flash videos you want on your Android smartphone, although Google has announced that Android 2..2 will feature native Flash support.
Skyfire 2.0 for Android is built upon many of the popular features of Skyfire’s 1.0 browser, and uses cloud computing to give a “booster engine” to mobile phones so they can handle rich media like video. And now, Skyfire 2.0 for Android takes mobile browsing to a new level with the addition of the SkyBarTM, a new toolbar that lets users enjoy millions of videos previously unviewable on mobile, and also discover the latest buzz on any topic they browse.
Skyfire is now available as a free download from the Android Market. Have a look and our article on Android vs iPhone to see which smartphone and mobile platform is best for you.
