Skyfire no longer working

It seems Skyfire is cutting out windows mobile users in favor of the iphone and android users. Does anyone know of a good web browser to use in lieu of Skyfire...preferably one the that can display flash content as well as Skyfire?
Thanks.

Re: Skyfire no longer working

right, anyway...
so I did some research and found two prospects.
1. UC Web browser. Easy to install, easy to use. However, after I started using it, I realized it was simply not what i was looking for. It only navigated to mobile versions of web sites and its interface is fairly elementary.
2. BOLT. Difficult to install. This was exactly what I was looking for. Easy to use, fast, visits full web page versions, multiple tabs, displays flash content and plays video. **Recommended over UC Web Browser.

Now, BOLT web browser is designed for JAVA phones. Therefore, I had to install a java emulator which the BOLT browser runs on top of. As stated before, it was difficult to install. When you visit Bitstream's website http://boltbrowser.com/dnld.html, you will find that the files you need to install are .jad files. My Omnia i910 and WM6.1 cannot handle these types of files. So I downloaded 'bolts2.jad' and transferred it to my phone.

Now you need the emulator. I found this one (Esmertec Jbed) and it is pretty stable: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=407667. I Downloaded and installed the most recent file. After installing the emulator on my Omnia, I loaded the .jad file and done.

Enjoy.

Re: Skyfire no longer working

Download the .jad file to your computer. Transfer it to your phone. I emailed it to myself and then opened the email on my Omnia and saved the file to my storage card. Once I installed the Java emulator, my phone recognized the file and it was able to install. I did find that clicking on the link to the file on the website, using my phone - it did not launch. But it worked when I opened te file that was on my phone's storage card.

Hope this helps.
