Skyfire, a mobile browser that allows PC like browsing on smartphones, has finally released 1.0 version. The version is available on Windows Mobile and Symbian and the company is in talks with Blackberry. The technology is perhaps the most comprehensive of all the technologies out there that allow a real PC like browsing and has support for Flash among other things.

It will be interesting to see if Skyfire becomes a browser of choice on smartphones and what if the limitations are. I was not able to get beta version running on my Dash a while ago, but some other folks were. I’ve moved onto Blackberry since so I can not tell if the browser indeed works as promised. I’d be curious to hear from readers.

    i have been using the skyfire browser on my e71 for a couple of weeks and it runs fine i have been able to use the bbci player, channel 4 on demand channek 5 on demand, grooveshark and last fm as well, it does seem to play almost anything i can play on my comp, the only drawback on the browser i have found so far is it takes too long to focus when you zoom in other than that its miles better than the opera mobile browser i used before
