Bolt Browser 2.1 Released With Tabbed Browsing & Facebook Enhancements

Facebook-BB Bold Homepage-BB Bold

Bitstream let us know about the latest update to their popular Bolt Browser for BlackBerry. Version 2.1 brings support for tabbed web browsing along with HTML5 video support and better integration with the Facebook website. The HTML5 support adds to the already large list of Flash video websites that work with Bolt.

The new Facebook integration now lets you use Facebook Chat inside of Bolt along with copying text and posting it to Facebook. Tabbed browsing is a very popular feature in Opera Mini so it should be a hit for Bolt. The widget gallery also got an update and Bolt servers have been upgraded to support WebKit 4.03.

The Bolt browser is available for free at though current users should be prompted in the app to download the update.

  1. It’s about time they added tabbed browsing… now I can ditch Opera Mini!!

  2. Wish it could be the default browser. But since neither it nor Opera can be, I just can’t see carrying around two or three browsers.

  3. why isnt the update on app world.. :(

  4. this browser just gets better and better

  5. Any word if they’ve improved the shortcut interface for BBs?
    Last time I tried this browser the shortcut interface was awful and several controls were very flakey. The browser’s abilities around RIM’s limitations are attractive but the usability factor was very low last time I took the thing for a test drive

  6. Totally wrong post.

    As a side note, I never got the Bold launcher to work.

  7. Uhm, wasn’t tabbed browsing added in 2.0?

  8. Yes tabbed browsing has been around since 2.0 with Bolt

  9. Any updates to the 20% issue? Storm issues?

  10. what makes this browser stand out from the regular inbuilt BlackBerry browser? besides tabbed browsing? how much does one surf on the blackberry with the browser?


  11. If it supports html5 why does it keep asking me to install flash I just want to watch porn is that so hard

  12. Your 26 percent of videos must not include porn cause porn is like 80 percent of online video bolt needs full flash when will skyfire finaly come out for the blackberry or do I need to switch to android
