Posted on December 23, 2010 by eli courey
Skyfire Web Browser lets you watch Flash videos on your iPad through an on-the-fly transcoding process conducted on Skyfire’s servers. The Flash video is converted to an iOS compatible format on Skyfire’s servers and than instantly streamed back to your iPad.
Skyfire Web Browser also includes some great social networking features for Facebook, Twitter and Google Buzz.
