First look: Skyfire for Android

Mobile browser Skyfire has won over the hearts and minds of many Windows Mobile and Symbian users for several reasons, including that it’s fast and supports all sorts of video formats (yes, even Flash). A BlackBerry version of Skyfire has been floating in and out of alpha for quite some time, and today, for a brief period, Skyfire opened up the alpha testing floodgates to Android users. The new WebKit-based Android code is in the very early alpha phases.  Video support of any kind, including Flash, has yet to be implemented — which is Skyfire’s bread and butter (since they’re using WebKit, and rendering locally, we’re starting to question whether it will actually come at all). All the same, we wanted to give you guys a taste of what the Skyfire experience, at least in part, will look like on Android.
