Skyfire, like Opera, is a free browser, and you can download the latest version from in Web on your phone, or the update is available in the browser if you are an existing user.

To go along with this new release, Skyfire are running a competition to win a Nokia N97. Over the next month you’re invited to record an online video about why you love Skyfire and “the most funny, clever entrants will receive a new Nokia N97,” naturally with Skyfire pre-installed.
