    Youtube streams much better now, and I also see there is an option in "settings" to make it the default browser. I did that, and I also mapped it to the "internet" button. I would like to see an option to import bookmarks from Opera and PIE. I like that now I can zoom in on a video on YouTube, and it fills the screen just like it should when displaying in "full screen" mode on a desktop computer. This is a major improvement over 0.6, but if the initial startup time could be improved, it would help greatly in the overall usability of this browser. (but it's good enough for me to set it as my primary browser). I would also like to see an option to specify a custom homepage, and also how far back to keep cookies and history stored on the device. I would also like to see integration with the OS, so phone numbers on webpages can be highlighted, and have the option to call them with the push of the OK button, (like you can in Opera 8.6). A more responsive mouse, (make it move faster), would be nice too; with an option to "right click" like you can on a full computer. Also, is there a way to click on scroll bars imbedded into webpages, and drag them? (like the ones on YouTube that are present in the "similar videos" sidebar)

    I have no trouble right now. Have you tried downloading the latest version to update all the access settings? (Just an idea.)

    Other than changing the settings in power management, is there a way to keep the backlight from turning off while watching videos on youtube or hulu?

    I also have to close skyfire and adjust the volume and can't adjust the volume on the site.

    as far as the volune, use the side wheel, it will minimize skyfire, just reopen it. im using smart toolkit, makes it eisier to re open. guess you can use the task manager to re open it also.

    When I try to log on to the .8 version, there are tons of problems (see the thread here called: "can't log on").

    Reinstalled the .6 version, & have no problems. Skyfire is aware of problems, has to do with their servers. When I hear from Paco that it is fixed, I will re-download newer version...

    Don't know if this will help....


    That was the first version released for the beta. I save all cab files on my storage card, so even though when I downloaded version .8, I got the message "Skyfire will remove the previous version...", I still have the cab on my card....
