    amazing on nexus one, but has problems with NSL (never stops loading, opera trademark :) ) on engadget.

    surprisingly it also runs on G1..

    flash ‘support’ is chunky, but it is far better than nothing imho

    • nvm

      No wonder you like this browser. It’s almost as crappy as Firefox.

        smoking much? stick to lolypops

        • nvm

          Aww, did I huwt your feewings, Bloatfox fanboy? :~(

    makes me wanna buy android phone… too bad it’s still costly here, for both the phone and subscription

  • nvm

    Wow, this browser is pretty crappy. The stock Android browser trounces it.

    And that bragging about Flash video? All it does is open it in a dedicated player, just like many other browsers.

    Lame. Deleted.

    Nothing beats the standard Android browser.

      addons/layers for browser beat pure browser

      and this one definately has advantages over browser

      and flash redirected to internal player is in every browser? show me it, im waiting.

      • nvm

        The only “advantage” Skyfire has is that it shows you pixelated, choppy slideshows of videos if it can’t send the video directly to a dedicated player.

        Addons/layers? What are you talking about?

        I’ll stick with the standard Android browser, thank you very much.

        Doesn’t Skyfire use Gecko on other platforms? That must be why it has an air of suckiness around it.

          too much lolypops causes brain tumor, you poor victim

          so what other browser can show you the flash content in internal browser again?

          • nvm

            Any browser with plugin support, and Flash is coming to Android very, very soon.

            I notice that you didn’t answer my questions. Guess that comes with being a scared Firefox fanboy :)

          • nobody

            first things first – what other browsers can handle flash movies/content the way skyfire does it? you claimed that every other browser can do this, yet it is a pure LIE

          • nvm

            Actually, Firefox fanboy, I said “many other browsers”.

            Of course, I’m not going to anwser your questions more clearly than that since you always run away and hide instead of answering questions yourself. Nobbie.

            there is no such browser other than skyfire

            and you are a paranoid, misinformed liar.

            your other comments are not worth wasting my time

          • nvm

            You never seem to waste any time obsessively ranting about Opera. Yet when someone destroys your laughable claims you run away. Wonder why.

          • nvm

            Case in point.

          • nobody

            “there is no such browser other than skyfire

            and you are a paranoid, misinformed liar.”

            still waiting for you confesing babling about something you know nothing about

            you: there are many browsers that can handle flash
            reality: no, there arent

            bite it, liar

          • nvm

            It’s quite pathetic the way you are trying to lie about what people are saying, nobbie.

            I didn’t say “handle Flash”, I said:

            “All it does is open it in a dedicated player”

  • nvm

    Oh well.
