Skyfire Browser Improvements Coming

Skyfire has been around since the old days when you had Windows Mobile 6 and Palm as your primary smartphone choices. Their mission then still rings true to this day; to give you a desktop browsing experience on a mobile device. This is accomplished by using their “Compression as a Service” to have everything transfer over rather smoothly.

Watch for Skyfire 4.0 Pro

They are obviously on to something, with two and a half million downloads on Android alone! Skyfire will soon be upgrading to 4.0 Pro Edition with a new UI and pricing model. Users who have been beta testing the application already will continue to get updates, which will be a lot of happy early adopters.

Check out their press release below.
