    I know this is on other forums on androidforums, but Skyfire 2.0 Beta is now available to download on the Market.

    I've been using it most of the day and have been able to view Flash content (it converts it and plays it). FYI - Unfortunately, Hulu has it blocked.

    sadly, most of the videos cause my phone to reboot.

    Yeah, this is the crap app I was talking about in the other thread. It crashes my phone when I try to view flash.

    i wonder what's different between our phones then... and whether any type of app removal, etc, may be the cause.

    Seems to work great on Android 1.5. Those of running 2.1 are ish out of luck for now. If you have it working properly please post what you are running and if you have the protected app fix, I'm just curious. :D

    Stock is poor compared to most 3rd party browsers, Dolphin is slower than Skyfire and Opera Mini has limited zooms. Xscope and Skyfire are the best I've used, Skyfire wins at rendering pages correctly and flash movies work fine on 1.5.

    I like Skyfire but it slow down my phone too much so I had to deleted it.

    Xscope still owns all with the pin zoom. F flash really, it's not that important to me personally.

    It wouldn't even open for me. Just force close over and over.

    It's still in Beta so cut it some slack. Good try but let's hope the official release is much better.

    yeah, after playing with it a little more, i had to uninstall it...

    saved images onto my sdcard, saved bookmarks on my home screen... still has some bugs, but it does have potential.
