Android owners getting their first taste of SkyFire

Android owners have been getting treated to a ton of popular apps that exemplifies the platform's continuous stance as being a dominant figure in app selection among owners. Developers have been quick to jump aboard the train to be part of Android's joyride which will no doubt see greater heights being achieved thanks to its growing base. Although it may not be perfect, Android has witnessed some stellar web browsers that have graced the platform. For those eagerly awaiting for SkyFire to become readily available, there is a leak that'll undoubtedly ring some good news to users who've been itching for this moment to come. The team over at XDA developers managed to get a copy of the highly anticipated beta version of SkyFire for Android – and they're going ahead in sharing the joys all around. Already claiming home to a ton of other premier web browsers, SkyFire will naturally be welcomed with open arms as it'll greatly compete in an already crowded market – from the sounds of it, the beta is turning out well as pages load up extremely fast and it looks sharp.

No if your smart you would kill yourself. And If all HTC devices had flash player then the G1 or the myTouch would have it too. Flash Lite is not Flash 10 and the only devices known to get the official flash update in a few months are the droid and nexus one. Where are you getting your information from? The Incredible looks great on paper but everybody doesn't want high ass Verizon CDMA service.

where im getting my information from is adobe, cause they said all android phones capable of running 2.1 will be getting flash, and i did say "as far as i know" and flash lite is better than no flash, i do know that it is not flash 10, but its the best we have right now maybe you should do some more research cause your information is way out of date, kthxbai

Has something changed since this? Has Adobe decided not to skip over the phones with the sup par processor? I may be wrong....but I am pretty sure my G1 will never get flash....officially that is...

It doesnt matter if the phone has flash support or not. Skyfire allows all of that to work. Flash ads, videos in browser, etc will all work in Skyfire.

I've had SKYFIRE on my modified TILT for 18 months now - works great especially with full 3G or WiFi :-)
