    Doesn't Skyfire just send the user an image of the webpage?

    Not exactly. But Skyfire is a server-side solution...

    "Skyfire works by having a proxy server sit between your browsing and the Internet. When you load a web page you send a request to Skyfire servers. Skyfire uses their proprietary technology, part of which is built on top of Mozilla's Firefox, to load the requested page and then sends it to your phone in a compressed Skyfire format. The Skyfire client running on the phone interprets this format and shows you the web page." (Source)

    I think it is probably more complicated than that. It does show all the elements when mice moves over the page. And it plays Flash videos within the page.

    Anyway, for end user stand point, its quite nice. I just don't have any chance of trying out myself. ...Maybe they can get a palm version first....Opera Mini does palm. Skyfire might be able to as well.... I hope
