Skyfire has launched an updated version of its mobile web browser for the iPhone. Skyfire 3.0 for iOS is now available from the App Store for $2.99.

The biggest change in version 3.0 is probably the app’s tight Facebook integration. You can use the integrated Facebook features to quickly access your Facebook feed or profile data without loading a new web site. There’s also a new Like button which lets you “like” and share any page you visit with the web browser.

You can also see what content on any web site is the most popular with your Facebook friends using the “Popular Content” feature.

The browser also features Twitter integration.

Of course, Skyfire’s claim to fame is that the browser converts Flash video from some web sites into iPhone-friendly formats using remote servers. Not all online video sites are supported, but Skyfire 3.0 does add support for video from more web sites.

There’s also a new “OneTouch Search” feature that lets you search Google, Wikipedia, or VideoSurf.

Many of the new features in Skyfire 3.0 for iPhone have been available for Android Skyfire users since November.

You can check out a demo video after the break.
