    I came across this 1.5 Skyfire application when I had a Touch Pro 2, (for flash), even though it was slow and choppy. They had a updated 2.0 version released ONLY Android last month, and I couldnt wait to get my hands on this Sprint EVO to test it out. I know the EVO has flash but some sites are still limited...

    Skyfire doesnt have any limits, (from what I seen so far). It gives you the option to use either browser whenever you come across flash content. I know 2.2 is supposed to have Adobe flash but I also noticed in the reviews for the Beta version it wasnt doing a good job rendering the videos yet. Hopefully it'll be fixed.

    However Skyfire 2.2 DOES and render the videos to fullscreen. Just wanted to share this, (I almost sound like a Skyfire rep). Just thought this was a cool app. Should everyone off until Android 2.2 is ready. Didnt post the link since I wasnt sure what the policy on that was in this forum. Just google Skyfire and download..

    I tried it on my Hero, and it was the slowest, most worthless piece of junk that I had ever used. Dolphin Browser HD has been flawless for me, though.

    its is slow. But if you NEED some kin of flash content not available on the others, it cant be beat

    worldstarhiphop.com videos for example ONLY work on skyfire. I use it for quick entertainment

    Skyfire was cool for old phones that couldn't support flash. For example, on my MOGUL, I absolutely loved it. Ever since I've had my EVO, I don't see much use for it.

    is skyfire the browser that renders server side and hence it is not a good idea to use it for logging on your bank account etc

    Yes, Skyfire processes sites on their servers, then present them to fully to your device. Whether its good to enter your sensitive information or not? That's up to you...I stopped using it after I confirmed that I could access/listen to my online XM account on my Moto Q.

    It should be noted that Skyfire works for flash video but not interactive flash content like games.

    Skyfire 1.5 is garbage. Slow, laggy, and crashes often. Only reason I used it is because it was the only brower that allow me to stream sports video live. Barely watchable but hey its better than nothing. I truly hope the newer version is better.

    Just started using skyfire beta on motoDroid and it works perfect for me, quick full screen and excelent picture quality which i didnt expect.

    You can grab the hacked version of 10 flash on xda. It works much better. Sky fire is way to slow for me.
