The good folks at Skyfire have been hard at work trying to get the BlackBerry version of their browser primed and ready for release. Beta testing at this point has not been without its bumps though and while work moves forward, bugs and kinks are still indeed being worked out through testing.
You can check out the latest feature improvements and known bugs below. Some are to be expected and some of the changes are just simply awesome, especially the option of using Skyfire as the browser to launch when clicking on a link - this is not the option to set it as default, but it's close enough to not complain as a menu item is added when hovering over thinks that allows you to choose "Switch to Skyfire" which will launch Skyfire instead of the native BlackBerry browser. Read on for more information and a few screenshots.
Some of the features we did add:
So far, I can same I am pleased with the SkyFire browser. Is it ready for primetime yet? Oh heck no. It still suffers from some serious memory issues at this point but to be fair, Skyfire did advise that all would not work right on 5.0 OS which I am running. That said though, they did welcome users to try it, if running 5.0 and the memory issue was still much a problem.
Skyfire has great potential for future releases there is no doubt about it. But at this point, I can't say that I would indeed use it on a regular basis as it stands. But hey, that's what beta testing is for.
