The Skyfire browser has been approved for Apple's iOS devices and will be available on the morning of Thursday, November 4, according to CNN. Skyfire will include a sort of Flash video support. Servers at Skyfire will convert Flash video to HTML5, which is compatible with iOS, and stream the converted video to the browser. Some sites, like Hulu.com, will not work with Skyfire's conversion service. The conversion will only work with Flash videos, and not games or Web pages that use Flash as a runtime environment.

Not really all that new

This isn't all that new- cloudbrowse does the same thing.

I love their Android app.

I'm so glad to see that Apple is being less restrictive with their App market for legitimately useful apps.
