Day One With the Skyfire Browser
The more I use Skyfire the more I like it. I keep giving myself reasons to use it. Did you know it was Valentine’s Day? Yeah! So I used it to check movies on Yahoo’s Full Movie site instead of the mobile site. I also showed my brother his company’s website on the browser. And then…
He owns a Windows Mobile device or two and was really impressed with its capabilities. The Shadow’s screen is perfect for Skyfire. A few comments in the other post about it would come in real handy, like Landscape view for instance.
I have discovered that the browsing speed over Edge is just about as fast as using Pocket Internet Explorer. When I am in my home my signal isn’t that great but why would I use a mobile browser while at home when I have a desktop PC? Outside is when it really matters. There must be thousands of sites that just don’t work with most mobile browsers and Skyfire solves that problem. So yes it does work over the 5.99 plan from T-Mobile.
The ability for it render flash is super handy as well. There are a few tricks I’ve learned with it. If I want to watch a flash video over EDGE I don’t zoom into the video so it fills the whole screen but instead just barely fill the screen.
I can’t wait for the next beta update to see what other surprises they have in store.
