Skyfire browser w/Flash coming to App Store?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sort of like Opera Mini that uses their own servers to convert web pages for faster downloading, Skyfire intends to send Flash pages to their servers to convert Flash to HTML5.

I doubt it can do a faithful conversion from an swf (other than for adverts) despite the fact it is bytecode and can be decompiled a lot of the time but for embedded Flash video, that will alleviate most of the problems experienced due to the lack of Flash.

It would make sense for Apple to do this as a service i.e if the user visits a page with Flash video and requests decoding, it could redirect the user to an Apple server that decodes the video and streams it through quicktime full screen.

The reason Apple won't do this of course is that it doesn't remove the dependence on Flash.

I doubt it'll be accepted by Apple.
