The most notable change is that Skyfire 3.0 for Android will feature tight integration with Facebook Connect. This lets you do a number of things. For instance, you can click the popular button to see what web pages are getting a lot of love from millions of Facebook users. You can also share or “like” pages or see what other Facebook users are saying about pages you’re viewing.

There’s a Fireplace Feed Reader which shows a tweaked version of your Facebook Feed including only status updates with links to web pages, pictures, or videos. In other words, it’s geared at letting you discover new web pages to view with the mobile browser.

The browser also now features a spruced up OneTouch Search area, where you can search for keywords on Google, Facebook, VideoSurf, Digg, Twitter, or Amazon.

Skyfire 3.0 should be available is available as a free download from the Android Market, but this is a limited time deal — Skyfire will eventually start charging for its Android browser. The iOS version of the app already sells for $2.99.
