It seems Skyfire now finally not without competition, with Mach5, a web browser which uses the same proxy-type method of rendering and transmitting full desktop-class websites to your mobile devices launching recently.
The software by NetAcceller is finger-optimized and like Skyfire offers full support for web video.
Unlike Skyfire however, while the application is now available as a free trial, it is unlikely to remain so indefinitely. If it does however provide a superior user experience there may be a niche for it after all.
See the video below for the app in action.
