Customizable & Scrollable SkyBar (Skyfire's Toolbar) - Select any feature above and choose to enable or disable based on your browsing preferences. It's browsing made your way!
The “Video” icon enables users to play millions of Flash videos around the web that otherwise do not play on mobile. This unlocks content trapped behind those error messages with question marks and blue Legos by transcoding the Flash content into HTML5 on Skyfire’s servers.
User Agent Switching
Load web pages as either traditional Android user agent or as a desktop browser. The desktop option gives you more flexibility in accessing web sites and allows discovery of video content that might not be visible on the mobile site.
Facebook quick view keeps your Facebook page loaded in the cloud for easy, one touch access to your news feed, profile, friends, inbox, events and places.
Fireplace Feed Reader
A simple but addictive tool that provides a filtered list of your Facebook feed that only includes links to browsable web pages, images, and videos posted by your Facebook friends.
You just finished reading a story on one of your favorite web sites and want to quickly decide what to read next. Click on the Popular button on the Skybar and instantly see what content on the site is most popular within the 500+ million user Facebook community. Recommendations from friends are prioritized and show up at the top of the list.
Explore ideas from a webpage, click "ideas" to analyze a page, pick a topic and explore search results for that new topic including results from Facebook, VideoSurf, Twitter and more.
Only enter your search term once and see search results from Google, Facebook, VideoSurf, Twitter and more.
Facebook Like Button
Puts the Facebook Like Button on every page of the Internet. No scrolling around searching for the button on the page, simply click on the Like Button to easily 'like' or 'unlike' the page you are viewing.

Great concept. Cripplingly slow. Will reinstall when speed increases.
Better than adobe flash. Need to make it so you can scroll through a video though. Right now you can only play video from beginning to end, you can't
