We reported a little while back that Skyfire was testing a version of their web browser made for the BlackBerry with a “small friends and family” group of alpha testers. Well, apparently they weren’t that close because one of our ninjas just blessed us with a bunch of shots. (We asked Skyfire to be part of the alpha test under NDA of course, and they declined. Oh well!). Besides Skyfire not realizing we’d be on this like and a extended BlackBerry battery sale, we actually have good news to report. Our ninja described the very early alpha software as “already being the best BlackBerry browser ever.” Nice, right? Sites load fast and effortless supposedly, with streaming flash video also working without a hiccup. But hey, we could talk all day, it’s the screenshots you want to see.
