Skyfire 2.0 for Android builds on Skyfire 1.0, adding cloud computing to enable mobile phones to handle rich media-like videos. Another addition called SkyBar lets users view videos previously unavailable on mobile devices.
As the principal focus of Skyfire's new and improved browser, here's a more detailed look at what you can do with SkyBar:
Video: Mobile devices are notorious for having issues with Flash playback, but Skyfire's browser kills this concern for the Android by translating videos into a format easier for mobile playback.
Related Content: The “Explore” feature digs up the most relevant content on the 'net based on what a user is viewing at the time. This includes video, buzz, news, images and other sites from the Web.
Because Skyfire 2.0 is built on a webkit core, users get all the functionality available on the default Android browser, such as pinch to zoom, copy and paste, find text on the page, open up to eight browser tabs, etc.
Check out their nifty video to see all the features in action:
“Skyfire 2.0 was built for the way people use social media and the web today," said Skyfire CEO Jeff Glueck. "People are now starting their web experience by scanning their Facebook and Twitter news feeds. Our new browser allows you to open those links and view the videos that your friends have shared. To make that work, people need a browser that can handle the full internet.”
