Skyfire comes out of beta

If you envy the iPhone for its Safari browser, well, there's a better alternative for Windows Mobile and Symbian users: Skyfire.

Skyfire is a free web browser for your mobile phone and offers superior browsing capabilities. We're talking about watching YouTube videos right on the web browser and not through java applications. The Skyfire browser is the closest you'll get to full desktop web browsing experience on your mobile phone.

I've previously tested the Skyfire Beta version and compared it with other available mobile browsers in my Best Web Browsers for Pocket PC post. Skyfire is the only browser that supports full flash websites but had issues with rendering. I'm downloading the Skyfire 1.0 version as I write and will test it again to see if rendering web pages have improved and will compare it with my Opera browser on my Samsung Omnia.

Currently, Skyfire is only available for Windows Mobile Users and Nokia E Series and N Series users. Hopefully, Skyfire will make a java version so that it can compete head to head with the Opera Mini.
