Tried it earlier today. Didn't work...
try pressing the menu key first...
I actually got hulu to play a video in skyfire, and was able to adjust the sound somewhat. However, it was like watching a poorly dubbed Japanese Godzilla film...the picture was about 5 seconds ahead of the video...
Here's a new announcement put out by the skyfire admin (Cheryl) today
Skyfire instant Download??
Did anyone see this?

I saw something online about Skyfire now being avialable to all. I went here to see news/announcements. There should be a section of the Board for announcements that include what the latest version is, release notes, etc.
Skyfire is available for instant download until August 30th if users use the Michael8 code to celebrate Michael Phelps 8 gold medals. The beta is still a closed private beta.
Where does one use this code to download the program?
Haha! Thanks. I was looking more specifically for where to enter it on that site - www.skyfire.com was already fairly obvious.
In case anyone else wasn't 100% sure - after you start the sign up process you put the code in. I had already signed up without that code, but went back and re-signed up using it and immediately got the download link.
Looks pretty nice so far! I LOVE that you can watch movies/videos without having to run TCPMP!
================================Glad I helped some one get it early....I waited months. I like the browser....needs to have download ability. It is useful when veiwing EQ on my Q9m...youcan use the 'thanks' button and post! Posted via Q9m.
download ability is being worked on, as well as better tracking for the cursor, and in-line text entry (among other things)
Single column text on certain sites was one of my feedbacxk recomendations to them, and I hope they get it done as well... really sucks to scan all the way to the right, then all the way to the left, just to read 'each' line!
Re-naming bookmarks would be nice
The ability to rename your bookmarks would be nice!
Anyone else notice that it really likes to close a lot? If I get a call it closes. If I open any other app it closes. I was going to suggest to them for a feature to make it the default browser but it closes so often and takes so long to load that I shut up and went back to mini.
This is due to the way that the Windows Mobile OS handles memory and if it needs to find some it will just close whatever it can, not sure if it bases this on any criteria but it will simply close it.
I've gone back to using Skyfire quite a bit after learning about the SmartFit option and the fact that I am now on EVDO. Yesterday I watched the whole of the Chelsea v Spurs game live in streaming video with no issues at all. It was great. :laugh2:
Well yes and no. They could easily instruct the OS that part of the memory is not disposable so that the stub stays running. Lots of programs do it. It's an oversight on their part I think.
FYI the skyfire .8 beta is now available on the skyfire forums
oops, not on the forums yet. should be soon. you should be able to download it like the other versions
Cool..I'm sure your gonna tell us the new features now..right?
the new features are listed on the skyfire forums. they have been very picky lately about people posting features outside of the skyfire forums (people have been removed from the beta)
