    Split Screen 03 Bolt let us know that their popular browser alternative for the BlackBerry is now out of beta. They have just released version 1.5 and have dropped the beta tag. The new version has quite a few promising improvements such as:

    • Server upgrades (make v1.5 15% faster than Beta3)
    • Cache support that enables directly browsing back to a previously visited page
    • Download manager that downloads files directly within BOLT on JSR 75 capable devices
    • Dedicated search bar, enabling search on popular search engines directly from BOLT
    • Enhanced column width control that auto-aligns the text to columns for ease of reading
    • Enhanced video support that includes inline media playing capability even on low-end devices.
    • Support for streaming videos of any length
    • Volume UP/DOWN controls in the inline media player
    • Ability to rearrange the subscribed feeds using the ‘grab’ feature
    • Access to History links from the URL window with inline editing OFF
    • One click access on Home Page that ensures the cursor jumps to the desired widget

    You can pick up the new version at

    Thanks to everybody who also sent this in!

    Pressing the space key on my 8130 for in line editing translates to a zero. I have to press shift then space to get my space.

    It would be awesome to have a zoomed out preview of the page, like what Opera mini does.

    Other than that, it is indeed a very fast browser. But those 2 limitations are stopping me from using it more.
