    I couldn't get flash to work. Is it supposed to work already or not?

    It only works on sites SkyFire recognises and knows how to find the video, which atm probably isn't that many. I guess the number of sites will be expanded as time goes on.

    According to the comments on Giz it does, but it's a little slow. It does have double tap zoom though.

    Multi touch works, its not 100% though, I don't get the lag on the keyboard I do on the stock browser in the forums reply box

    skyfire makes web browsing a lot faster...in my office at work i only get 1-2 bars and with skyfire it makes the web run as if it had 3-4 bars..so far so good..

    i just tried youtube..it gave me the option to open video using htc flash player, skyfire or youtube..only youtube worked..

    I don't get the hype. The stock browser will play .flv and .swf (Flash) files that are displayed on web pages that Skyfire will not play. So far stock is still the winner in my tests.
