    I use Opera Mini 90% of the time. It processes full web pages that fastet on my device, in my area. Bolt worked fine before the most recent upgrade. Now it stalls at 20% quite often. Many people do not have this issue. Perhaps is the area I live in. I also don't like how Bolt will not cache previous pages. If I go back to the previous page or pages, it has to reload every single page. Many people do not like the zoom feature on Opera. I like it. Especially for sites I visit often. Once I move my cursor to that part of the page, I can simply zoom in. I also like how Opera & Bolt will allow you to input text in a pop up text window. This allows me to input data using the AutoText feature on my BlackBerry.

    \Although I wish there was a setting for mobile sites to default to column view, all else page view.
    You can set your browser to column view as a default in your 8900. I have mine set that way. It's an option in the browser settings.

    What-up what-up!

    Played around with opera and bolt, but
    went back to default broswer. Its simple
    and easy to navigate attracted me back.

    Give them a test run, you'll be baaack!
    Exactly. I tried both. Both Opera and Bolt get points for TRYING but the basic reality is that both have serious weaknesses and the default browser is the best of the three.
