Bolt Browser has Closed Down Due to Economical Circumstances

It looks like Bolt Browser, one of the ever so popular 3rd-party browsers for the BlackBerry has been discontinued.  Bolt brought tabbed browsing to BlackBerry’s, also the speed of its browser was one of its biggest advantages.

Here is the statement directly from their website:

The free BOLT mobile browsing service will be discontinued. Unfortunately, the economic circumstances prevent us from running a free service going forward. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your loyalty and support.

It is definitely a big loss to the developer community for BlackBerry. They will surely be missed.

  1. Wow, talk about a sad day fro mobile… I remember back on 4.5/5.0, BOLT was my browser of choise hands down…

    Maybe they can move into the ad-supported market or something? :/

  2. shocking……..dun do dis plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  3. it is my fav browser……..so kool……..plz dun close it …..plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  4. I was good for OS 4 and 5. But since then, the native browser has been awesome as has Opera. I don’t see this as a big loss.

  5. It had barely improved in the last 2+ years…

  6. I can’t really say I’m surprised. Without being able to fully integrate as the “default” browser, it would be hard for ANY 3rd party browser to gain traction on the BlackBery platform.

  7. Yeah. I’m very sad, but not necessarily surprised. I still have the Bolt browser on my phone, but haven’t really used it since the huge improvements in the native browser in 7.0 software.

  8. after reading the notic of bolt browser homepage my eye is full in tear. i request you please donot close boltbrowser plz…….

  9. Yes, after reading the message in the morning I was literally crying. It had become a part of my life. Love you ‘bolt’. Wish this didn’t happen!

  10. why closed i am so soked

  11. pls dont close this browser…..it very important for my nokia mobile…pls find sum solution….

  12. no!..guys so is there any other good HTML browser? I need one.(not opera or Uc browser)

  13. Bolt is my favourite browser in my phone. I have Opera and Uc too, but they can’t do what bolt can do. So I’m so sad. Bolt, please don’t go, I’ll never find another browser like you!

  14. this is so shocking…. i can’t even imagine my phone without Bolt…. :(
    i’ve opera, uc, digia… but Bolt has so many such features that no other browser ever had… :(
    plz don’t quit bolt… however, bolt will be missed, definitely & desperately…. :(

  15. I cried. Bolt, I will miss you!

  16. Missing Bolt Browser….I hope it would start once with more features……lets b positive !! It was top browser on Cellphones !!

  17. Omg.. I just got a bb running os5 and here saying: let me go and watch a video via bolt, because I know the default dosnt show em on my EDGE network. To my surprise. It won’t connect. I went to the site and was disappointed immediately by what I saw and read, I must admit, I really wanted to cry. Knowing that this browser have been soo faithful to me all the years gone by… Oh Bolt my loyal amigo, please come back to us? Please?

  18. This is heart breaking,you know.opera and uc are good but bolt gave us the chance to browse like we used to browse with our pc.Bolt redirected to Desktop version of any site while opera and uc redirect to Mobile versions of the same site.
    ALSO,bolt’s download capacity is far better than that of opera….however,uc is the best in case of downloading.

    HOPING FOR A COMEBACK,GUYS!
    BOLT FTW!!

  19. come back soon bolt
