      Flash videos to be exact. Not flash. AFAIK videos are converted to other format on the fly. Its pretty common technology those days, all youtube downloaders, etc work this way.

        but no other mobile browser do that, and this is quite a feat (costly for them :/)
        and you do not need to convert anything in most cases, as most flash videos are in h.264 anyway and only require ‘repackaging’
        due to my 2.2 android having native flash (and it rocks) i do not care for it, but i can tell you one. going back to iphone after a month with 2.2 is painfull, mostly because of lack of flash

          yes you are right about h.264

        Flash video doesn’t use any special formats, so you can simply download the video itself.
        Youtube-dl for example does this.
        You can find a list of formats and the codecs and containers they use on Wikipedia.

    This browser was pretty bad.
    I hope they fix some flaws

    Skyfire will die. Opera is barely making money off of regular Opera Mini users, so the cost of running Skyfire must be astronomical.
