The Skyfire browser is the first mobile browser to support full web PC browsing, including rich media content and supporting Ajax, Flash, Quicktime, Windows Media, and others.

Skyfire, announced today that they are opening up registration of their free browser to all. In addition, the Mountain View based company is announcing the .8 version of their revolutionary product for Windows Mobile. The new version of Skyfire adds even more speed and ease to browsing the Internet from a mobile device.

"We don't like to think of ourselves as a mobile Internet browser," said Skyfire CEO and Co-Founder Nitin Bhandari. "Skyfire is a full feature Internet browser on the mobile device."

"Leaving private beta is a huge step for us," continued Bhandari, "We have accomplished our goals of the private beta - launch, listen, improve. Demand for Skyfire has been extremely strong and we are excited to bring this more evolved product to more devices and users."

Previously, people who wanted to enjoy the exact PC web experience on their handsets had to sign-up on a waiting list for Skyfire. With today's announcement, the latest version of the Windows Mobile Skyfire browser is available to anyone. The 0.8 iteration of Skyfire for Windows Mobile includes marked improvements.

Hopefully, this release will place more pressure on Apple to make MobileSafari Flash capable.

"Hopefully this release will place more pressure on Apple to make MobileSafari Flash capable." Oh hell no. I for one enjoy being Flash free on my phone. Flash is bad enough on the desktop without it hindering my mobile browsing as well.
