Enter uZard Web Into the Mobile Browser Wars!
If you are a fan of Skyfire then here is a new browser for you to try out! It’s called uZard Web Version 184.108.40.206 and it is a proxy based browser just like Skyfire and also does flash pretty well I must say! I found the user interface very easy to use and uZard did it’s job pretty well. My only complaint so far after a few minutes of playing with it is that it does not zoom in as well as Skyfire. As a matter of fact it uses a Pocket Internet Explorer version (on the left hand side however) zoom in/out scroll bar. The other thing I was hoping for is resolution better than VGA, but maybe down the road? I got a mini review photo gallery after the break, ahem David K. 🙂 So jump after the break and check it out!

As you can see for the photo below, uZard does flash!
Here are the control functions located at the top on the left hand side of the address bar:
The Controls across the bottom of the page listed below are Home Screen, Favorites, Zoom, New Window Button, Forward & Back, and a return button.
Text entry is done in a new window which is handy for passwords so it shows the text and not symbols that are anyone’s guess if you fat fingered it or not.
YouTube played pretty well at my house over a WiFi:
All in all I thought it was a pretty good browser, but still not at the level Skyfire is. Skyfire has smoother scrolling and a much better UI. I did think pages render a little better on my HD2 with uZard than Skyfire, but Skyfire loads them quicker for me. Also ran into a few hiccups like the one below, but again, not bad.
I used to be quite a non-stock web browser junkie back in my WinMo days, keeping the XDA new Opera leaked beta forum open all the time, fiddling with other browsers like Skyfire along the way, never using IE except to download Google Maps as they didn’t like other user agents.
But now on Android, if you’ll kindly let me throw in a kool-aid comment, though I’ve fired up Opera Mini, Skyfire and Dolphin HD (pretty good by the way, Dolphin), I’ve stuck to the stock browser. Think it’s pretty good, no desire for something else, I think they got it right.
By the way, quick PSA for AT&T people: If you feel like the images you’re seeing on any web browser of any platform are heavily downsampled and look like crap, that may be because AT&T snuck in their wireless.cingular.com proxy server when your phone did an autodetect APN thing. It sucks, must be intended for dinky phones like the RAZR (or intended to spare AT&T’s infrastructure more likely). Anyway, you may want to check your wireless settings and if it’s there, remove it along with port 80 if it’s specified. /PSA
I enjoy your view on this content. Many the things you raise actually indicate out how I think. We’re certainly alike. This homepage seriously have a whole lot of appealing blog posts. I will definitely pay attention to this webpage and I really don’t book mark plenty of webpages.

UZard does not work on CDMA devices yet. An error pops up and says the radio is turned off
Please let me know if there is a fix for this. Uzard could become the most used browser since skyfire turned off windows mobile
