If you’re like most Android users, one of the first things that you’ve downloaded was the Skyfire browser. For months before Android 2.2 came out and made our devices Flash-capable, Skyfire was bringing that content to the forefront.

Apparently, according to Skyfire, the browser is so popular that it has just surpassed its 2 millionth download from the Android Market.

If you’ve not tried out Skyfire, now is a great time to give it a download. The newest version works on a load of devices such as the Droid X, Droid 2, Evo 4G and even Samsung Galaxy phones.

Beyond the obvious, though, Skyfire has a few other features that will interest you. It uses a cloud-computing frame that can reduce your data consumption, has a tabbed browsing format and the new SkyBar will give you toolbar access to great content.

Congrats to the Skyfire team. Here’s to 2 million more.
