Skyfire acquires kolbysoft, hybrid browser to spawn

Skyfire, creators of the browser of the same name designed to offer “full Internet” with rich media to phones at virtually every point of the smart/dumb spectrum have acquired kolbysoft – the start-up that brought us Steel, which was the first browser to really take over as a mainstream alternative to the stock Android browser. What this means, outside of kolbysoft’s coders becoming Skyfire employees, is that Flash (already on its way), Silverlight, and a lot of other “Desktop” features should be headed for Android before long, via an official Android Skyfire release.
