Skyfire

Skyfire

Skyfire is a mobile web browser which renders requested web page on a proprietary server and relays it to the browser on the end user's mobile phone which displays the content. Skyfire currently runs on both the Android and iOS platforms.

The Skyfire Browser is built for the social-networking generation and for people who love Android and want to get more out of it.
