    Bolt vs Blackberry Browser

    Bolt wins.

    The pure speed of Bolt is what makes me stay with it. Ive heard Opera is pretty good too, but I am happy with Bolt. I am not sure why other people hate it. It does what i want, so it stays

    I like the Bolt browser, its head and shoulders above the BB browser. Much faster and Yahoo will render properly, unlike with the native BB browser.

    I've had both bolt and opera mini...Not too impressed with either...although in my opinion, opera mini is the quicker of the two...holding fast with the bb browser for now...

    I've used bb browser, opera mini, and bolt and of the three, I like Bolt the best. I play mafia wars on facebook quite a bit and it is the only browser tha correctly renders the site. Opera was usable on facebook, but sometimes links were buggy. I also like how in bolt you have to select the link twice. It prevents selecting the wrong link with clumsy fingers. Splut screen is also handy when you want to scroll around fast.

    me too im sticking with the native browser. i still keep opera installed though. seems like CB renders better on opera. but this site is about the only thing i use it for. my personal opinion is if it takes me longer to properly click a link then the browser itself is slower, doesnt matter if it renders a page faster or not. some people (like me) are just clumsy with 3rd party browsers. i can get to where i want to be quicker with the BB browser.
    to the OP... just download it and form your own conclusion.

    i have bolt on my storm and it is much faster than the regular browser and the scrolling is much easier. the zoom on it is not near as effective however and clicking on smaller links on a page proves to be somewhat difficult. i use it for certain things but tend to favor the regular browser just for its ease of use.

    I loved opera on my old curve. Opera is hands down better than the curve browser. I don't know about Bolt. I would love to see the 5.0 browser. I think we'll get some google docs support with it. I would love to see bookmark sync from the desktop and faster java support. Flash?

    Downloaded bolt after only using opera. Opera is 10x faster. I ended up deleting bolt because I would lose all service when it tried to load the page.

    Who of those that do not like it have used Bolt since the last patch? First patch I did not like it, but I tried it again when the last patch came out. I like it for when I can not see some sites correctly on the BB browser. Give it another try if you have not used it in a while.

    Does anyone have problems with Bolt getting stuck rendering at 20% for a while?

    Lately, bolt has been hanging longer and longer at 20%. It always stops for a second, but more and more now it hangs there for a lot longer then the page loads.

    I have to admit the rendering of bolt is better, but opera mini 4.2 is faster. Also with opera mini if you go to the crackberry website it does not display all the pictures correctly on the page. I wish opera would correct that!

    The Bolt browser has some quirks but is kind of decent on the Storm. Hopefully the next version will be on point. I keep it just for one particular site. Its supposed to be super fast but its not. If your looking for speed, Opera Mini is the move. It moves so fast that you would think your connected to DSL. Try them both and see which one you prefer or get them both like I did.
