    Not at all. It isn’t converting anything to HTML5. Wonder why Skyfire keeps lying. It should be called Spyfire, too.

    I believe that is true as not transcoding because it may not be that fast, but yet again what if it uses GPU for doing that?

    ARM has about 10k ms in Sunspider, C2D about 300ms so can’t it be done, no it can’t…
