the new skyfire
 
so i was using the old skyfire and just keeping it in landscape mode until i did a hard reset on my phone, and when i went to the site i noticed that it had changed and that i didnt need to log in to download. but the best change i noticed is that skyfire works great on my pro switches from landscape to portrait like a breeze no more half screen, i didnt even need to login to use it even though i did anyway. sorry if this has already been posted. also the text boxes arent off centered everything is in the right place it works great

yeah, they just posted the new beta version for the VGA devices a few days ago.

Works great!

I like Skyfire a lot too. I don't have anything bad to say about Opera for TP but this is a fantastic update. Thanks lionspride for the info. By the way I hope that isn't Detroit Lions pride....jk...lol

I certainly don't agree with that statement, although it does have its uses.....

When screens are zoomed out the text and pictures are blurry...Is this the way you guys are seeing it right now too?

When I went to get.skyfire.com it said my device was a 6800 so I am not sure I have the correct verison.

It's because it's not true VGA, all it is QVGA that's been streched to fill a VGA screen, now who knows if they are ever going to have a "True VGA" version, some of the mods on the Skyfire forum are saying no, others are saying yes.

Can't see why they wouldn't eventually. Everyone will have VGA in a few years!

I'm liking the skyfire so far nice. Nothing like 3 different browsers to choose from :)

I really hope they do a "full vga" skyfire :( would be nice

Re: the new skyfire
 
Thanks guys. It works well with things like hulu for video playback. But the landscape mode needs work. Also it's a pain when video is playing the device turns the backlight off after a period of time.

I didn't really like Skyfire. I guess I should give it a little more time but I the one thing I wanted it for was sites like Hulu. My test videos had unsynced audio and overall it's just harder to navigate.

Thanks,
Finally, I am able to download it. They never send the text message when I sign up. I just downloaded the cab and installed. Now I get to see what everyone is talking about.

The cab won't help you if you're not approved for the beta yet... go to their site and attempt to log on.. If you're approved, there's a way to get in..
