Another major shortcoming with Skyfire's flash player is that you have to watch the entire video all at once, because Skyfire is unable to save your spot in any video, and you can't forward or rewind in a video. So basically, don't expect anything from Skyfire beyond watching a 5-minute clip while your device is on a stable WiFi connection.

One thing that's probably worth mentioning is that Skyfire only recognizes ONE video per page- so if you're on a page with multiple Flash videos, well, too bad. That's a rather surprising shortcoming for this app.

Since it's the only way to watch Flash video on an iPhone without jailbreaking, Skyfire is a killer app that's worth getting for anyone. Playback of Flash video over WiFi is flawless, and the quality is, at very least, watchable. Skyfire also a pretty good all-around browser, but I don't think anybody really cares about that as much as they do about Flash support.

It's a great mobile browser and scores over Opera Mini on only one account - playing Flash movies but Opera still tops the chart on all other parameters. I had installed & used Skyfire on Nokia E63 for a few days but wasn't greatly impressed with the performance but it's worth a try or even as an alternative for watching online videos (Flash-based) on the go.

One of the strongest features that I've enjoyed about this browser over others is its ability to play flash videos from just about any site. The only limitation with flash that I have encountered so far is that you can't play flash games using this browser, but holy wow does it play everything else. I'm definitely happy... now if only the zoom in and out was as fast and responsive as Opera Mini then I'd be 100% on it... until then, I'm only 95% happy with this browser :P
