Skyfire has updated its namesake mobile browser with a new 1.5 release for Symbian smartphones, adding support for high-resolution screens and a refreshed user interface.
Launched last year, Skyfire is a free download designed to deliver a full web experience on Windows Mobile and Symbian handsets, supporting Flash, Java and Silverlight content plus the ability to link with social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
Version 1.5 adds a number of enhancements to Symbian phones with Nokia's S60 3rd edition, and is also now available in a beta version for S60 5th edition phones.
Skyfire 1.5 for Windows Mobile was released in December.
For S60 3rd edition, the updated release adds smoother scrolling and all-round improved performance, according to Skyfire.
The new beta for S60 5th edition features a "finger friendly" user interface for touch-screen handsets, auto-rotation of the display if the user twists the phone from landscape to portrait view (and vice versa), and a full-screen view with no controls showing to maximise page visibility.
Skyfire chief executive Jeff Glueck said that the update delivers crisp and stunning high-resolution video, text and images.
The browser can be downloaded from get.skyfire.com.
