Mozilla & Gecko clones "Fennec, the mobile version of Firefox, has gone to beta. Though currently only available for the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet, it appears to be functional and stable. Firefox introduced many innovations into desktop browsing, most of which have since been emulated by the competition. On mobile phones the competition is already fierce, and Fennec will have a hard time proving its value against other browsers which already offer much of what made Firefox so compelling." Ars has more.

Well I would beg to differ. Skyfire is by far superior, and I may be wrong but the last time I checked Opera cost money. Skyfire does a much better and efficient job in loading pages, zooming pages, and most importantly displaying them.

Opera Mini is free .. And so is desktop Opera.
And additionally Opera has servers that downsizes webpages for you so that you dont have to download the entire page to your phone, nice if you pay hefty GPRS/UMTS transfer charges on your mobile subscription ..
