    Which one do you like better OM5 or BOLT 2.0. BOLT 2.0 sucks to me. It's lacking.

    Bolt. I hate Opera's UI. Tabs were the only advantage Opera had, IMO. Bolt is just as fast as the latest Opera, on my phone. I prefer the full desktop style sites that Bolt gives me.

    They both need better OS integration.

    Edit: Opera's UI is so much better on the Storm. When I get my S2, I will be using Opera.

    I don't like Opera's setup on my 8330. Opera 5 looks like it'd be great for a Storm 2. But for my 8330, its a tad laggy. So for me Bolt (1.7 or 2.0) gets the nod.

    Also, I have tried Opera's 4.2, it runs smooth, but again I hate the setup. At least for Bolt, its setup much like the BB browser.

    While I am not a fan of either if I had to choose one it would be Bolt 2.0.
    Opera is not nearly as good a browser. I do however stick to the native browser
    for almost everything.

    I have both on my Tour. Will be deleting Bolt soon. Every page freezes for 30 seconds at 20%. Makes going to each page about 30 seconds slower than Opera 5. Makes using the browser very annoying. It has also froze up on me 3 times in the first 15 pages I visited. Bolt is no good at least for me.

    Did you install Bolt 2.0 cleanly? As in remove any old version, reboot, install 2.0, reboot? I'm curious to see your Bolt settings.

    Last time Bolt was laggy for me, i just deleted and reinstalled and it was then perfect after that.

    I definitely vouch that Opera Mini 5 is better. Im using the beta and i still find it to be fast, well organized and better looking. Where as the bolt seems a bit choppy and doesnt always load pages fast.

    I love the new tabbed browsing and the features of Bolt 2.0, but i feel like the overall appearance of Opera 5 looks a lot better than Bolt.

    On my 8330 Opera seems to look better, but the lag just sucks. Bolt's not as pretty, but it runs better.
