Skyfire updated to version 2.3.

The folks over at Skyfire has released an update for the one browser that supports Flash on Android. See the list of enhancements below.

Enhancements in this release: Video playback: We improved our video streaming reliability, thus you should see a much lower occurrence of video timeouts with this new version. More enhancements are in the works, so video reliability will continue to get better.

YouTube: On July 23, YouTube changes many of its APIs and YouTube support on Skyfire became intermittent. Resolved.

Desktop/Mobile switch: When switching between Android and Desktop mode of a page we better preserve the original page URL to reduce confusion due to page redirects.

Video startup time: Video playback start time improved as much as 5 seconds.

Fixed in this release:
Startup Crash: For some users, Skyfire would intermittently force close startup. Fixed.

Battery optimization, especially when Skyfire is in background

Samsung Galaxy S: Better support for Flash 9 to co exist with Skyfire Toolbar.

Find on page: functionality fully working now

Exit Skyfire in Android 1.5: On Motorola Backflip a HTC Magic it is now possible to properly exit Skyfire a long-pressing the 'back' key.
