    What's up folks. BGR has some screenshots of skyfire running on a BB. I can't wait till this come out. RIM take notice. This is what the factory browser should be.

    Make a note, streaming flash video, is not flash, but just one single component whithin flash, so I really doubt flash based games/intro pages are going to work
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    I won a moto Q9h for selling a bunch of moto phones once, and was able to get into private beta with skyfire for winmo. I loved it. I used the phone for about a month but couldn't give up my bb. I've been waiting for skyfire for bb. I can't wait till its finally released. When I used the Q my home area was only edge, but we've recently becom 3G so I'm jonesing for some BOLD + HULU fun!!

    I've been waiting and hoping for Skyfire for BB for MONTHS! At last, it's been announced that they're considering it and even working on it - I never thought it'd happen based on their comments about a year ago.

    The process is now on private beta so probably will be open to a "invitation" beta soon, rumors say will be available before of the end of the year...hopefully

    I know. Actually it's on private "alpha" now and only for the Bold. Some of us have signed up for the alpha/beta/whatever test but, unless you have a Bold right now, you're outa luck.

    Download it and check it out on your P-C. I've been using it on my P-C for years. IMO it's the best of the browsers. I almost NEVER use IE any more and seldom use Google Chrome, Opera or Safari on the P-C. Those of us who have used FireFox for a while have been drooling for a version of it (which Skyfire is supposed to be) for the Blackberry. I hope we're not disappointed! I think we'll have our answer soon.

    I gotta tell you I have high hopes for a better browser for BB. The browsers are improving all the time. Opera, Bolt, even the BB browser isn't terrible although it doesn't do everything...and soon, Skyfire!

    I can't wait and I'm gonna be REALLY disappointed if it's not a great browser.
