    Yes, it completely depends on the use you make of the browser and the webs you usually use...
    Hardly. I have yet to find a site that does not render properly with the default
    browser. Bolt and Opera are simply (my opinion) useless and a needless waste
    of memory and overhead.

    On GPRS a full page can take ages to load, whereas in Bolt it takes seconds.

    I'm never on GPRS so that is a non issue for me.

    Hotels and Vacation Reviews - TripAdvisor
    Orbitz Travel: Airline Tickets, Cheap Hotels, Car Rentals, Vacations & Cruises
    Teva Sport Sandals & Shoes | Water, Hiking, & Outdoor Footwear!

    Those sites (the full sites) are not rendered properly using the BlackBerry browser. On Trip Advisor you can't add city pins. Orbits loads halfway but you can't search or buy plane tickets. Bolt loads them all great though and they work. Not having a PC i've tried MANY sites using the BlackBerry browser.

    Don't ban me!

    So Amazinggraceless, how fast can you render pages on the native browser?

    I takes me close to a minute to load full pages with native, where it takes 20 seconds on Bolt in full HTML...and in mobile half that...

    I see no difference in how they look...

    CNN, Fox News, my bank, ESPN all loaded (just tried) in less than six (6)
    seconds. The full Crackberry site, The Hartford Courant, Huffington Post,
    Time and Newsweek all loaded in just a shade over.

    The website for the Town I work for, two surrounding towns, and the State of
    Connecticut all loaded in less than ten (10) seconds.

    I use Opera Mini 5 for everything exept OTA downloads then I use the BB Browser, I hate how slow the BB Browser is, even on the T-Mobile Web 'n' Walk site the BB Browser is slow no matter what emulation mode you set the BB Browser to, where as Opera Mini 5 flies on all mobile sites but I find it slower on full sites, but as I mainly use the BBC mobile sites, espn mobile, T-Mobile Web 'n' Walk and Facebook Mobile it doesn't bother me and the speed dials and the Google search are a big winner as I don't have to search through the bookmarks folder, and I also prefer Google to the Embeded. Yahoo search on the T-Mobile Web 'n' Walk site and also don't have to wait for the Google Mobile search page to load to do a search.
