Skyfire 2.0 for Android Launched

Skyfire 2.0 for Android has launched bringing a new browser to the Google [GOOG] mobile OS.

SkyFire 2.0 includes a cloud-computing toolbar called the SkyBar that brings three key features that are missing from the native Android browser and a competitor, Fennec.

The SkyBar includes Video, Explore and Share. The SkyBar sits at the bottom of the screen and acts as a secondary toolbar to the browser and brings a few unique features.

Video is a function that can fix broken Flash videos. When loading up a video on an Android device it is often not possible to play the video. This button fixes that allowing a warning to pop up that launches the video in to a pop up player.

Explore brings in information on the specific page and provides recommendations based on Twitter buzz, trends, similar videos and other sites.

Finally the Share option lets the web page content you are looking at be linked to social networking sites. By clicking the link you can immediately share with others.

In summary the SkyFire 2.0 Android browser brings the following…
* Enjoy Flash video content
* View mobile or desktop versions of websites
* Intelligent related media recommendations
* Share instantly with your friends
* Innovative toolbar UI for easy and fast access

Check out the video presentation below that demonstrates each function.
