Skyfire Labs announced a public beta of its Windows Mobile web browser, claimed to make browsing on a smartphone "just like browsing on a PC." Touted features in Skyfire version 0.8 include fast operation, contextual zoom, improved text entry, A/V playback, and Today screen integration.

Skyfire was touted as the first mobile browser on any platform to be fully compatible with technologies such as asynchronous Javascript and XML (AJAX), Java, and embedded Flash. It renders pages exactly as they would appear on a desktop computer, with all the expected content, including embedded Flash movies and other multimedia, the company says. Rather than being redirected to stripped-down mobile versions of popular websites, users can interact with the full-featured versions of sites such as YouTube, Myspace, and Facebook, Skyfire adds.
