[smg id=1] Skyfire is finally out of beta. Like with all of the mobile browsers available it has it’s strong points and it has it’s weaknesses. I think it’s strongest point is it’s ability to load up pages with Flash very well. The other day I was able to follow live text on the BBC with auto-refresh and it worked perfectly.
My main issue with Skyfire is that the text can still be quite small for reading sometimes. If I manually zoom into the page and increase the font size I then need to scroll horizontally left and right in order to read the article. I hope that they will have a feature where the text can be re-arranged into a single column when the text size gets too large. For now I still find Opera Mini and Mobile the most comfortable when it comes to reading articles with the Touch Pro.
A positive point with Skyfire is that the browsing speed is not too shabby!
