Skyfire to retire WinMo browser

By the end of the year Skyfire is going to "kill" its WinMo and Nokia browsers and concentrate on its next gen browser for newer OS'

Re: Skyfire to retire WinMo browser

Skyfire killed the WM servers a few weeks ago (rendering the software useless), with no announcement whatsoever until last week.  This caused tons of confusion and bad feelings from WM users, judging by response on XDA.

 

The paid app on the iPhone app store is apparently killing it (reached the Top 5 apps within 3 hours of release).  So apparently, Steve Jobs is dead wrong about iPhone users not wanting Flash on their phones.  But its also disappointing to see a company that doesn't care about supporting it product, doing so well.  I understand that WM up to version 6.5 is all but obsolete, and Skyfire will likely support WP7.  But  they should have at least announced they were dropping support BEFORE actually doing it, not weeks after the fact.

Agreed.  It's the WM users that made Skyfire popular and to drop them without warning was shady at best.  I have since started using Uzard and will more than likely not help promote Skyfire in the future.
