A new version of Skyfire is available in the Android Market
A new version (3.0.1) of the popular Skyfire browser is now available in the Anroid Market. Although it's a relatively minor update, it adds a few improvements, so let's take a closer look at what Skyfire 3.0.1 has to offer.
First of all, it gives you the chance to move the app to your SD card in order to save precious phone memory, but keep in mind that this perk is only available if your phone runs Android version 2.2 or 2.3. Secondly, the guys at Skyfire say that "file download will happen in background and notification will be automatically placed in the system tray, which should make downloading files faster and more fun" - sounds similar to Android Market downloading. Last, but not least, with this version of Skyfire you can upload files directly from your browser, although once again you need either Froyo or Gingerbread to do that.

On top of all that, sending crash reports to the Skyfire team is made very convenient with this version of the browser, which will hopefully bring improvements in the long run. Skyfire 3.0.1. is now available in the Android Market, so we wish you happy and bug-free browsing.

Loved me some Skyfire, especially during those dreary Windows Mobile days. But I recently switched back to the stock Android Browser just to compare and I realized that I didn't miss much. The biggest issue is Skyfire allows you to keep the screen on at all times. Stock Android Browser times out just like any other moment....
