Skyfire version 4.0 which the company is calling their “Pro Edition” should be out in the coming weeks and is expected to be as good as ever. With over 2.5 million downloads of their browser, it looks like the company has decided that it’s time to monetize it with some sort of a pricing model. There will also be a new look and a bunch of “killer” features, that we have not yet been informed of. This is an odd press release, I’m not going to lie. I guess this would fall under the “teaser” category?
Anyone a big Skyfire user?
