Hmmmmm The Best Browser Out There Its Been Around For Like 3 to 4 years and when I first heard about it I was like Really So I Kept It ITS GREAT THE FLASH SUPPORT IS COOL. Thanks for sticking around.

Edit: I used to love this app, lately it slow and crashes a lot. I will give this an average rating because it used to be a great browser and I don't know how it is on other devices. It is no longer compatible with the Galaxy Nexus. It would have been nice if there was some sort of warning system in place to let me know, instead of letting me keep trying this browser and having it crash and waste my time. On the GNex, Dolphin and Firefox are great, and Chrome is moving up well. I am loving this browser. I also use the Dolphin browser and love the competition between them. That just makes using them that much better.

I've been using Skyfire since I purchased my phone over a year ago. Recently, it has been freezing my phone by using over 82% CPU usage at times. The only reason I haven't installed yet is bc I'm trying to save my bookmarks to another browser. But trust me, there is no reason anyone should download this app. Oh, by the way, upon the last update, the permissions asked for personal contact info. Now I receive spam texts and emails at least 3x/wk. Coincidence? I think not.

clunky, slow, terrible UI. This is a dated product. Flash is now available on all browsers, so the main selling point for this one is no longer there. Other than that it had no distinguishing features and is actually many steps backwards in terms of usability. Use Maxthon or Dolphin.

Cheap Charging users to view video content on your web browser is ridiculous. Google Chrome and Internet Explorer does not charge users.... then why should you? What makes you so special? It's not like your video capabilities and quality are any better. Stop the madness.
