Skyfire Browser Already Brings Flash

It looks like Android phone owners won’t have to wait for OS version 2.2 to get Adobe Flash video support on their phones. On Thursday, Skyfire Labs announced Skyfire 2.0 for Android, a new proxy-based Web browser that plays Flash videos embedded into Web sites.

Now, let’s note that this isn’t full Flash support. Interactive Flash menus and games aren’t covered here. Rather, Skyfire is detecting Flash video using its servers and transcoding it into HTML5 video for phones to play, according to a press release.
