Rockmelt On Your Phone? Skyfire 3.0 Brings Facebook Integration And More Social Features


Saturday 23rd of November 2013 / androidpolice.com
Alternative browser Skyfire made waves with a previous update that allowed it to play Flash videos on any device, and the latest update to version 3 has even more features that most other browsers are lacking - built-in Facebook integration, notably similar to recently released PC/Mac browser RockMelt.In addition to aforementioned ability to play Flash videos, Skyfire now includes the following social features:Popular Content instantly see what content on the site is most popular with your friends and the Facebook community Fireplace Feed Reader nothing but the links from your Facebook feed. Simple and addictive Facebook Portal Integration one-touch access to your Facebook feed, profile, places and status updates Skyfire Search simple way to search across Facebook, Google, VideoSurf, Twitter and more As Adobe's official Flash player comes to more devices, Skyfire really does need a new hook, but I'm not sure Facebook integration is going to be it. Anybody planning on abandoning their current browser for this?Full press release:Skyfire Launches First Mobile Browser for the Social Net

Opera releases Opera Mini 5.1 browser for Android devices


Wednesday 14th of July 2010 / talkandroid.com
The guys at Opera have finally released their version of the Opera Mini browser for Android devices. Having used Opera browsers on other phones I have been waiting for this. The biggest feature I wanted is easier tabbed browsing and Opera hits the nail on this one. Other features include speed dial for bookmarks, full screen viewing and more. The Opera browser also compresses data before sending it to the phone which speeds up loading times. If you have been looking for an alternative to your built in browser I suggest you give Opera Mini a try. This has become the main browser on my Droid now. Download from the Opera mobile site. For more information on Android and the current Android mobile phones, check out our Android Guides Opera releases Opera Mini 5.1 browser for Android devices

Hey iOS 6 Users...Google Maps to the Rescue Bringing Street View to your Mobile Browser


Thursday 04th of October 2012 / androidspin.com
This post goes out to my iPhone friends (because I have so many), Google Maps is going to help out that Apple Maps debacle. You can now access street view when using Google Maps through your mobile browser. Remember Tim Cook, Apple CEO himself, said that you guys should use alternative maps while they struggle to make Apple Maps what it should be. Google has come to your resume. See, Google is not as bad as you think.Starting today, you can now access street view through the mobile browser platform, so you can get that somewhat ambience from that restaurant you are looking for. I am sure everyone reading this knows what street view consists of. This post is kind of another poke at iOS 6. We have all had fun hearing about Apple’s “successful failure” of iOS 6. I say successful failure, because even though the Maps failed miserably and iOS 6 being a bit sub par, iPhone users still flocked to get the iPhone 5, or downloaded the update as soon as it hit their phones. So if you want to get street view on your phone, simply got to maps.google and click the pegman icon. D

Chrome to Mobile Lets You Share Web Pages From Your PC to Your Phone – Yeah It’s Exactly Like Chrome to Phone – Droid Life


Wednesday 08th of February 2012 / droid-life.com
If you checked out our first impressions of Chrome for Android yesterday, then you probably noticed in the top screenshot a toggle for “Chrome to Mobile.” At first, we assumed this was just a tie-in to the already present Chrome to Phone extension in the market and on the PC version of Chrome that allows you to send current web pages directly to your phone. Well, that’s exactly what it does, only it’s a completely separate extension that needs to be installed in your PC Chrome browser instead of Chrome to Phone. Why on Earth they would not try to merge the services is beyond me, but so you know, “Chrome to Mobile” is separate from “Chrome to Phone” only it works in basically the same way.    How to set it up:1.  The first thing you will need to do is open your PC Chrome browser and grab the extension.2.  Once you have that installed, you should see a little phone icon appear in your address bar:3.  You will want to click that and then follow the instructions on the screen to get it set up.4.  Then open your Chrome for Android app

Tuesday 14th of December 2010 / phandroid.com
Yes, we know there’s a Gmail app, but many people still prefer using the web. Simple reasons – such as better attachment handling and more flexibility – keep users tied to the mobile web experience in this day of users screaming for native apps. If you’re the type who still takes to the browser for your email needs, you’ll be happy to know that Gmail Web for Mobile has been updated to introduce more HTML5-developed features and to add a LOT more languages. The list goes from just English to the following:If your phone’s default language is one of those listed, go to gmail.com in your phone’s browser and the new interface will appear in your language automatically. We’ve been rolling these changes out, so some of you may have already seen them. You’ll get a bunch of new goodies including offline support, smart links (titles will appear in links for Google Maps, YouTube and Google Docs), the ability to add and remove labels, layout improvements and more—in addition to the existing features like starring, better threaded conversations and search.T

Hands-on with the Firefox browser for Android phones


Tuesday 27th of April 2010 / androidcentral.com
This isn't the first time we've seen the Firefox mobile browser running on Android, but it's the first time that Mozilla's been comfortable enough with it to compile the app for us mere mortals to test out.Why do we care so much about another browser for Android when the stock Webkit browser works pretty darn well?Two words:Mozilla Weave. Being able to sync your history, bookmarks and even open tabs between your desktop and mobile browser is something I've been wanting since first hearing about Fennec. And we're getting closer.Note that this is still very early in the development stage. While anyone can download and install this build of Fennec, it will crash.It will hang. It's a little buggy. And it's very cool that Mozilla lets us play with it this early in its life, so don't judge it too harshly. A few warnings from Mozilla's Vladimir Vukićević:We've only really tested this on the Motorola Droid and the Nexus One.It will likely not eat your phone, but bugs might cause your phone to stop responding, requiring a reboot.Memory usage of this build isn't great -- in many ways it's a

Flash Fox Flash Browser For Your Android Device!


Thursday 14th of November 2013 / droidforums.net
As you well know the latest versions of Android and the phones that they came on do not support adobe flash at all. You have to jump through some considerable hoops just to be able to watch the game on your phone. Flash Fox is the number one browser to experience the whole screen. There are lots of things you can do with flash on your browser. You can play games, stream movies, just about anything. This has to be one of the easiest solutions to viewing flash content on your mobile phone or tablet. There is not nearly as much flash content as there was 3+ years ago, but in the off chance you must have flash this is the way to do it. Via Play Store
