SkyFire today launched a new browser for Android devices that focuses on Facebook with integrated Facebook features and shortcuts. SkyFire 3.0 is available for devices running Android 2.0 and higher. The new browser uses SkyFire's SkyBar feature, which offers shortcuts to watch Flash videos and share Web content, adding Facebook shortcuts to the mix. A Facebook button brings up a user's Facebook page in a smaller window that can be accessed and dismissed with one tap. Other buttons let users view all of the links and photos posted by their friends, and provide shortcuts to "Like" or share a page. Users can also see which stories on a news page, for instance, were shared and recommended by friends, and which are most popular overall. SkyFire has also extended the search capabilities so the browser can now search Google, Facebook, Digg, Twitter or Amazon. The browser uses SkyFire's Rocket Platform for accelerated downloads from SkyFire's own servers, which compresses video and could save heavy flash users extra Bytes, according to the company. The SkyFire 3.0 browser is available in the Android App Market for free for a limited time.
