There are a large number of web browsers for Android smartphones (stay tuned for my showdown article) and one of the earlier ones just saw a huge update yesterday. Skyfire for Android was updated to version 4.0 and has a ton of functionality and social networking integration, including a new slick scrollable bottom toolbar.

As you can read in the full press release version 4.0 includes eight new features in a customizable scolling SkyBar, including:

  • Twitter
  • Groupon
  • Share
  • Google Reader
  • Sports
  • News
  • Finances
  • Settings

SkyFire Video also moves to a freemium service available for a $2.99 one time fee. This is available as an in-app purchase after a free three day trial. Verizon Android owners who download this new version soon will also get the video optimization feature for free. The three million beta testers who have used this version also get the video optimization feature for free .
