Skyfire Browser Coming to Android?
Thanks to a recent acquisition, Android owners might be seeing the Skyfire web browser on their handset before too long. Kolbysoft, the makers of the popular Steel browser, were just purchased by Skyfire for an undisclosed sum. For those of you not in the know, Skyfire makes it possible to replicate a PC web browsing experience on your mobile device. Up until now, Skyfire was only available for Symbian and Windows Mobile.
It’s being said that Kolbysoft was picked up because of their talent, which we presume means “ability to develop for Webkit”. As you may know, Android’s native browser uses Webkit as the backbone. Skyfire has relied on their own “Gecko” rendering engine to create the PC-like browsing experience. Blending the two of these, we should expect to see Skyfire arrive on Android before long.
