BOLT Browser 0.94 Released: Fixes Erratic Scrolling Issue

poweredbyBOLT_revisedTom let me know that BOLT has released a new beta version of their free (during beta) browser for BlackBerry. It finally fixes the erratic scrolling issue found in previous versions on the BlackBerry. I love how that fix is considered a new feature…

BOLT’s new features include:

  • Significantly improved BlackBerry scrolling speed and control
  • A new 3XL (extra large) magnification mode with content 33.3 percent bigger than in 2XL
  • Double tap approach to select links on touchscreen devices like the BlackBerry storm (eliminates inadvertent clicks)
  • Wi-Fi auto-selection as default option when Wi-Fi is both enabled and available
  • Save and view pages locally on the phone
  • Support for folders in favorites
  • A new landscape viewing feature
  • Copy and paste feature
  • Improved magnifier dragging in split screen mode on the BlackBerry Storm
  • A user preferences page to reduce menu clutter, especially useful on BlackBerry smartphones where the native menu structure, without sub-menus, is utilized.

You can pick up this latest version of BOLT at http://boltbrowser.com or by heading to this download link directly.

  1. No flash?

  2. Well, if they added BIS instead of using a WAP connection. We’re charged for such traffic here so this is not a viable browser because of that. Opera added it long ago to their Mini browser.

  3. Can’t see eventually paying for what they offer now. Just not that impressed.

  4. Excellent
    Much much better

  5. Does this browser works with the storm?

  6. I might be in the minority but I find the built in browser pretty satisfactory for my needs. It’s not so bloated and slow. I guess I’m lucky in that just about every site I need to which I need access has a mobile-friendly portal.

    Regardless, I am grateful to the authors of Bolt for providing a free option.

  7. I’m pretty impressed with the scrolling now.Like how you can save youtube on to memory card. Can’t do that with opera mini….bye bye opera.

  8. I’m using bolt to acutally write this comment and I have to say this is by far better than opera, this includes lanscape view and acutally works opera doesn’t the zoom is bada** and the scroll is amazing! Every page is true view and you can surf and buy just like home pc freaking awesome I agree bye bye opera this thing is so fast!!!!

  9. All said and done. I am happy with the inbuilt BlackBerry browser. All 3rd party browsers are a no no for me. Doesn’t impress me at all.

  10. Whomever gets flash first, Opera or Bolt, I will adopt. So far I don’t see leaving Opera for Bolt.

  11. i have no complaints with this as well! i like this browser pretty well.

  12. I mostly use the native browser, but sometimes one browser works when another doesn’t. Multiple choices and upgrades are always welcome.

  13. Finally my prayers have been answered. A browser with which I can play my onlinegames. :-) And I tried quite a lot different browsers on different phones.

  14. First impressions are a rare positive having used Opera Mini and Mobile for a few years (forget the rest). Bolt feels Beta, but has the edge on quality and speed. You can now view and edit desktop pages with relative ease eg Gmail, Calendar, Youtube. That’s not possible in another mobile browser. The mobile versions or apps for these generally miss important functions. Still testing.

  15. I am not that impressed. it is better than the initial offering but in testing bolt vs opera mini, i still default to opera mini. it will always be free and the pages just fit better and look better. speed wise, bolt is sort of a rusty bolt. hoohumm.

  16. I like this browser so far. The 2 things it doesn’t do that I would like to see is be able to click and email address on a website and it open my email. I also would like to listen to my favorite radio stations streaming audio from their site. I have been bugging them to get a BB apps like some others are, but it has yet to happen so I was hoping this browser would allow it to work. Oh well. Good over all though

  17. I can’t zoom the page
