Skyfire for Android hosts a lot of cool features, some of them are as follows.

  • SkyBar- SkyBar brings the best of the Internet to a mobile user’s fingertips, without any additional searching. By activating the SkyBar with a single touch, users are given access to any broken embedded video, related content, as well as the ability to share content to their social networks.
  • Video –The “Video” icon repairs any broken Flash and rich-media video content embedded within a webpage. Goodbye, question marks and blue Legos.
  • Related Content – The “Explore” icon brings the most relevant content on the Internet to a user’s fingertips based on what they are viewing at the time, without the need for arduous time spent typing in often unreliable mobile searches. The related button pulls video, buzz, news, images and other sites from the web based on what is on the current page.
  • Sharing – The “Share” icon lets users update their social network profiles like Facebook and Twitter with a single click.

To make this whole Flash deal possible, Skyfire uses cloud computing technology to render all the flash content on it’s own dedicated Skyfire servers, therefore they’re more optimized for your handset and the performance is just great, without trashing or consuming a lot of your data package. All these great features are yours for the taking on your Android device! Give the browser a shot and tell us what you think about it.
