  1. Every time I tried this browser on my 4.5 8330 it was lots of hourglass and little download. I always used the builtin browser just to get things done. Sigh.. I guess I’ll try again.

  2. I’ll give this a download, but I don’t see myself switching from Opera.

  3. About every other version or so I TRY to get excited about Bolt. Had this on my Tour for a grand total of about 15 minutes and yet again just can’t get spun up about it. I’m probably too set in my ways, but I just can’t get hyped over how slow this is compared to Column View under OS 5 on a site optimized for BlackBerry browsing. Sheesh, BerryReview is a MESS try to read it in Bolt. I’ll stick with the native browser.
