Browser like skyfire

I used to have skyfire web brouser on my nokia n97 and it was just fantastic, it did everything i wanted it too but now sadley they don`t port to the symbian platform. Is there a browser out there that can do the things skyfire did? ie play wm9 video as well as many other formats. Apparently it could do this because it went through their servers that converted it to a format for nokia phones.

Smile Flash

Skyfire stopped support sadly as you said . The only browser I know of , that supports Flash , is the Nokia Web .
I am also interested in more replies to this question ...

any Flash at all, in browsers other than Symbian Web?

Yes, after trying out the Youtube app, comparing it to the mobile site in Web and experimenting with Flash playback on some other sites,
if there is actually no other browser with Flash support,
I think it's safe to say that implementation of Flash in Symbian3 sucks balls!
Skyfire in fact did save the day back when they still supported Symbian. I can't believe Nokia haven't come up with anything yet to remedy this problem! Just look at Flash on Android phones, or better, that's what Nokia should be doing...


browser, skyfire
