    If it's like skyfire on winmo, it renders the pages on the server, then sends results to the client, resulting in faster load. Also, Skyfire in Winmo could load up Flash with no problems whatsoever. Even on my mogul. My mogul had (i think) 64MB of RAM, most Android phones have 256meg+. I'm really looking forward to skyfire.

    I got the alpha today and was trying it out. Seemed like it was pretty good for an alpha build. Plenty of room for improvement. Hulu doesn't work in it, nor did abc.com video. Anyone know a good video site to test it out on?
