    I've read this will crash the V phone. How many have experienced this?? Overall is this a good browser over the original default one??

    Thanks

    I tried it...no crash on my V but it was slow as hell. I dumped it and went back to Opera Mini.

    It doesn't crash my V...I use it now and then when I need to view Flash on a Web site...sometimes it helps. Try it, you won't hurt your phone.

    I've had good experiences with it. It streams on sites that default browser doesn't via Skyfire's servers.

    I had Skyfire - no crashes but it seemed it had some bug with the keyboard. Every time I had to enter something, the keyboard was kind of flashing and not registering the keys.

    I deinstalled Skyfire and use Opera Mini and Miren Browser. Miren is faster than Skyfire, has pinch zooming and when you double tap a text it reflows the text column so you don't have to scroll left and right to read it.
