Skyfire is a mobile web browser which renders requested web page on a proprietary server and relays it to the browser on the end user's mobile phone which displays the content. Skyfire currently runs on Android and iOS. As of 31 December 2010, it no longer supports Symbian OS or Windows Mobile. Skyfire comprises two distinct generations of mobile browser technology. In Skyfire's first generation (1.x) browser, a web page is fully rendered by a server separate from the mobile device, similar to the operation of a thin client. This approach is also used by Opera Mini. Skyfire's second generation (2.x) browser employs a hybrid approach, using a conventional rendering of Web pages on the handheld device, but streaming video from Skyfire's servers. Skyfire is a web browser which operates by rendering requested web page on a proprietary server. Rendered output is relayed to the browser (running on the end user's mobile phone), which displays the content.
