Customizable & Scrollable SkyBar (Skyfire's Toolbar) - Select any feature above and choose to enable or disable based on your browsing preferences. It's browsing made your way!
The “Video” icon enables users to play millions of Flash videos around the web that otherwise do not play on mobile. This unlocks content trapped behind those error messages with question marks and blue Legos by transcoding the Flash content into HTML5 on Skyfire’s servers.
User Agent Switching
Load web pages as either traditional Android user agent or as a desktop browser. The desktop option gives you more flexibility in accessing web sites and allows discovery of video content that might not be visible on the mobile site.
Facebook quick view keeps your Facebook page loaded in the cloud for easy, one touch access to your news feed, profile, friends, inbox, events and places.
Fireplace Feed Reader
A simple but addictive tool that provides a filtered list of your Facebook feed that only includes links to browsable web pages, images, and videos posted by your Facebook friends.
You just finished reading a story on one of your favorite web sites and want to quickly decide what to read next. Click on the Popular button on the Skybar and instantly see what content on the site is most popular within the 500 million user Facebook community. Recommendations from friends are prioritized and show up at the top of the list.
Explore ideas from a webpage, click "ideas" to analyze a page, pick a topic and explore search results for that new topic including results from Facebook, VideoSurf, Twitter and more.
Only enter your search term once and see search results from Google, Facebook, VideoSurf, Twitter and more.
Facebook Like Button
Puts the Facebook Like Button on every page of the Internet. No scrolling around searching for the button on the page, simply click on the Like Button to easily 'like' or 'unlike' the page you are viewing.

very unique browser. Tried other browsers but Skyfire worked best with my device.Cons: Does not save browsing page if u click on another app. Restart
Works great. Easy video watching. Happy with product. Would five stars if i could remind or fast forward vids and sometimes my windows close

Very good browser. Only con is the constant pop-up trying to get me to buy video add-on! How about a "do not remind me again" check box?!

Works fine on DROID 3. Minimal force closes. Let's me pull up full web pages not mobile pages.

Great browser that's really fast and optimized for Facebook. However, there's absolutely no way to copy text (long press) from an interesting web page like with the stock browser. I'd rather have the capability to copy text from a web page than tight Facebook integration (would be fantastic to have both features). Your mileage, of course, may vary.

This browser blows every other browser out of the water. Super fast, supports flash, and I havent ran into that annoying window limit. Job well done!

I decided to download and try this out as many people seemed to like it but its totally horrible! Its slow, clunky and bloated. It has huge tool-bars and icons that take up most of the screen and I cant seem to find option to hide them and on top of it it keeps popping up another tool-bar/advert with an advert for me to buy a video add-on?? I mean really what are these people thinking?? They must be crazy. Got rid of straight away.

Pretty good. Built in flash player works great! Loads pages as desktop! Wish u could advance through a video though :(

Skyfire is a great browser that exceeds the others in web page functionality. My only negative is that bookmarks have no management feature, or I can't find it.

Seems to be more adapted to mobile than the one coming with Android. Fast and also reuses existing bookmarks. Good!
