Skyfire has launched version 3.0 of its award-winning mobile web browser for Android. The new version includes some cool features with the most important being integration with Facebook connect.
“Skyfire 3.0 with Facebook Connect makes mobile browsing social,” said Jeff Glueck, CEO of Skyfire. The new feature are integrated directly into Skyfire’s SkyBar and brings the true power of Facebook to your Android device with easy streaming of videos shared from friends, quick news feed access, an easy way to see the most popular web content based on recommendations from friends and Facebook community. The only complaint with the latest version is that Skyfire is still using the old Facebook Connect to login when the new Single Sign-On is already available for Android.
Skyfire 3.0 for Android mobile devices with Facebook Connect is now available through the Android Market. Here’s a video of the browser in action:
