Skyfire 4.0 for Android has some new customizable options in their 'Skybar', which is like a favorites menu that gives you quick access to Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader, Groupon, a "share" button and sports, news, and finance feeds. But! They're going to start charging Android users for their excellent video playback feature.

It'll be a one time fee of $2.99 for their famed video feature—Skyfire use their own servers to convert and optimize video, after all—that lets you watch more videos on the web than your normally could on your Android phone (it does cost $3 on the iPhone and $5 on the iPad). It's not all bad though! Users who are upgrading to Skyfire 4.0 (from a previous version of Skyfire) will get the video option for free and in a deal struck with Big Red, Verizon Android users will also be able to access the video option for free. Hopefully you guys are in that boat. [Skyfire via Skyfire]
