Skyfire 1.0 mobile browser now available

Skyfire, the mobile browser that will be competing with Opera and Mozilla’s Fennec, has reached version 1.0 and is available as a free download.

Presented as “the only mobile browser to bring the full PC Web to phones”, Skyfire 1.0 comes with new features and, thus, with improved usability.

Skyfire supports a wide array of plug-ins, including Flash 10, Ajax, Silverlight 2 and Javascript, allowing users to browse any website and watch any web video or live event from their phones.

The browser also features stuff like scrolling and zooming, plus Facebook and Twitter integration.

For the moment, Skyfire 1.0 is available only for Windows Mobile and Symbian S60. A BlackBerry version is in the works too, and a Public Beta should be released later this year.

To download Skyfire 1.0 for Windows Mobile or S60, visit the browser’s official website.
