The Skyfire team has been working on polishing its web browser before the 1.0 milestone that just launched now. From the version 0.9, Skyfire has improved the user interface (the zoom+scroll in particular), search and even power consumption. Windows Mobile (5+6) and Symbian users can download the version 1.0 at get.skyfitre.com today. Blackberry users will have to wait as the Blackberry version is still in closed beta.
If you are not familiar with Skyfire, it is a mobile browser where web pages are pulled by a desktop PC in a central server location. The PC runs flash, silverlight and other heavy plug-in, then compresses the image and sends it to your phone. It is like a “remote desktop” in some ways.
