Skyfire 1.0 mobile browser launches today

SkyfireSince launching in public beta last September, full-featured mobile browser Skyfire has been installed by more than a million North Americans. Today, the official first version has been released, and is available for free on Windows Mobile 5 and 6, and Symbian S60 3rd Edition handsets.

Skyfire has striven to provide a PC-like browsing experience on phones since its earliest stages. All pages are rendered on Skyfire's servers instead of in-phone, and it supports Flash 10, Silverlight 2, Ajax, and JavaScript, making most rich media fully available even on 2G data connections.

In version 1.0, general improvements have been made to the browsing experience, with links available when pages are fully zoomed out, increased startup speed, improved AJAX rendering, and a new network configuration mechanism which assists in connecting to Skyfire's servers.

Like the beta versions of Skyfire, any previous builds must be uninstalled before installing 1.0.
