[Upd] Skyfire 1.0 for S60
Beta testing period has finished and Skyfire web browser has finally reached its final 1.0 release. Skyfire is similar to Opera Mini, i.e. it renders the content on a proxy server and compresses it before sending it to your phone, which saves traffic and page downloading time, but it goes beyond what Opera Mini offers with its reach multimedia support including Flash, Silverlight, Ajax and more.

Improvements specific to the Skyfire 1.0 release include enhanced navigation, zooming and interaction as well as faster launch, power optimization, and new search functionality. Having previously delivered rich media and text readability on a small screen, the focus of this latest release was helping users get to the content they want more quickly. As the new version starts-up, users can type a search or URL in the Superbar while even while Skyfire is connecting in the network. After a web page loads, smooth scrolling and zooming helps users navigate the page more quickly. Likewise, now users can click on links on the first page load without having to zoom first.
