Skyfire web browser somewhat faster and easier to use

Skyfire mobile web browser
The latest edition of proxy-based mobile phone web browser Skyfire for Symbian launches a bit faster, lets you click links without zooming in, zooms smoother, and when you send the program to the background it disconnects to save battery power.

Skyfire still doesn't support T9 predictive text input, in-page links, and scrolling through inline frames. And it won't fit web pages to the width of your phone screen the way browsers like Opera Mini and UCWEB do. And compared to other mobile phone web browsers Skyfire is still horribly slow.

So why would you use such a horrible browser? To watch video! Skyfire plays YouTube movies and other video that no other mobile phone web browser will play. Skyfire is not the browser of choice for text and pictures, but it's a good idea to keep a copy on your phone for watching web video that other browsers won't show, because Bolt is not ready for the job yet.

Update: Skyfire for Symbian is dead.

This review was stolen by the copycats of because these thieves are too stupid to write their own stories.
