    Okay, no sign of it on the market but the direct download is now live! Check it out!
    EDIT: For those wondering, Hulu doesn't work with Skyfire... This article explains why.

    Very, very, very nice. Way superior to Opera Mini.

    I loved Skyfire on my old Moto Q. SO excited to see in on Android! It supports multi-touch zoom too! (A little clunky though, but it works!)

    So it is here go get it in the market today! It is pretty slick looking but do keep in mind this is a beta so do not expect perfection. Pinch to zoom seems a little jagged and it needs work overall but it is a nice start.

    Lovin this so far, huge plus that it lets you change user agent to view mobile sites like they would on the stock browser (something Opera lacked).

    I like it a lot.

    The cache is a killer though. One video on ESPN and the app is suddenly taking up 14 Mb. :eek: They need to incorporate a clear cache on exit option.....an exit option by itself would be nice too.

    Gametrailers doesn't work. I asked me to download flash.

    Some other sites seem to work.

    EDIT. Gametrailers DOES work. You have to manually select video from the menu. Some pages do this automaticly.

    Engadget posted/blogged about this. I think they mentioned something about server-side-conversions or something...

    Does not work well on the Samsung Moment. Running (leaked) 2.1 DD10 build, etc. Restarts the phone when loading a flash video to play. Slow like a MoFo too. Uninstalling, maybe others will have better luck. :) Also stated that it was having problems playing videos as well.

    To Automatically Clear Cache on Exit:

    Click on the menu button in the Skyfire (down triangle inside the circle), go to Settings, go to Privacy & Security, and check the Clear Cache on Exit box.

    You can also change other privacy settings (form data, passwords, history, cookies) on this page and clear any of the above.

    Just tried it and so far its pretty cool. One thing I have found annoying is that when a page loads it is slightly zoomed in forcing you to pan left and right to see the whole page its only off by a little bit. You have to double tap and it will auto zoom out to the whole page. And it does this on every page. The stock browser seems to auto fit the page correctly.

    I was able to get a video from ESPN.com to play. Unfortunately I'm not on wifi at work so it did have to buffer itself frequently (for a <3 minute video) but it's a start. I'll have to wait till I get home to try out the flash video sites I'm really interested in ;)

    There is an option in the settings menu (the one reached by clicking on the little arrow-in-a-circle under the address bar) to change the starting level of zoom for the browser, and it is set to medium by default.
