Well, what do you know; Apple has just approved the Skyfire mobile browser for the iOS.

According to CNNMoney.com, it shall be available on Thursday and is priced at $2.99.

Is it any good? Well, the main selling point is this: Skyfire has a built in Flash video to HTML5 converter. Therefore, iPhone, iPod or iPad users will be able to enjoy Flash content. However, don’t get to excited as it won’t convert games or other non-video related content.

    “Skyfire has a built in Flash video to HTML5 converter.”

    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…

      It does transcoding. It does not convert crap to HTML5.
