opera skyfire horizon Opera owned Skyfire launches international version of its Android mobile browser extensionThere’s good news for Android device owners who like to personalize their Internet experience after Skyfire, the company bought by Opera for $155 million, released an international version of its Horizon mobile browser extension.

Horizon is a toolbar which can be added to Android mobile browsers to give shortcuts to a range of services, in particular social networks.

That means more convenience for users but, for operators, that’s also a chance to pre-load featured content, ads, customer care links or other items into a user’s browser.

Skyfire says that Horizon is now being used by “two tier 1, US-based operators,” and this new release (version 7.0) will let overseas operators follow suit if they wish.
