    Basically its a really early alpha not worth downloading its buggy as ****. This is ver 1.0 and they are currently on 3.1 I think so its not representativre of what's out now.

    I did get it installed, but ran very slowly and ate up memory like nothing I have ever seen. Deleted it and will wait for them to get it out of alpha/beta.

    I downloaded the app and it worked but now it doesn't. I'll wait for it to be released. From what I saw I liked it.

    I'm assuming it routes your content through it's servers and compresses it before delivery to our BB's. Wonder if the leak overloaded that server and it is now down? Just a thought.

    That is what is believed to have happened by some that are more in the know than I am.

    My guess is if there is more load on their servers they are are prepared for, they can't really do any testing.

    This folks, is why some stuff is better off NOT leaked..real beta users of SkyFire are now going to have issues connecting and addressing bugs for the day which in turn, slows launch.

    I just find this entire thread amusing, especially the post below. It's interesting to see the double standard with regards to leaked software (OS versions versus this).

    Double Standard? This is a third party company with far more limited resources than RIM. Leaking OSes causes as much harm as this, but RIM is better prepared to deal with it.

    A twit from their twitter update:

    #skyfire BlackBerry private Alpha temporarily closed. Leaked beyond our intent. Sorry for the inconvenience to our alpha testers

    The difference with OS leaks and The SkyFire Leaks are that the Skyfire leak will have an effect on development...the OS leaks will only screw up your device... not effect others.
