Skyfire has updated their highly regarded mobile browser, introducing beta version .9. Some of the changes include a new start page with integration to RSS feeds and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Adaptive font sizes lead to improved readability of text and you will have an option to download media streamed by Skyfire. The improvements also include support for plug-ins like Flash 10 and Quicktime and the browser will render pages faster with better zoom abilities.
