Skyfire 2.0 for Android Released

XDA forum member psp888 has posted the news that Skyfire 2.0 (beta) for Android is now available!

Following the news of the leaked alpha, Skyfire have launched version 2.0 – the actual beta for the Android platform.

The popular browser is compatible with Cupcake (1.5), Donut (1.6) and Eclair (2.0/2.1) and has been confirmed to work with the Nexus One, Droid Eris, Motorola Droid and HTC Hero devices, to name a few.

Some members have expressed disappointment at the lack of support for flash games and applications, however it seems that Skyfire are currently concentrating on enabling flash video playback.  Nonetheless, the general feedback in Nexus One forum is that Skyfire 2.0 is good for a beta version. Why not download and see for yourself?

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
