I have to admit that the prior releases did not stay on my BlackBerry for long, but this version I am really liking so far and since my current BlackBerry will not be getting BlackBerry 6 and the WebKit browser this is looking like a great alternative.
To download the Bolt Browser on your device head on over to Bolt Browser on your BlackBerry.
Anyone else find that its almost impossible to hover over a link with a trackpad? The scrolling is so jerky that it just skips over most links.
Edit: already deleted it off my phone. The useability isn't very good. I couldn't complete the "media wizard" because I couldn't click "finished". Went to Youtube afterwards and I was stuck in an endless cycle of "press play to start" then "connecting" then "press play to start" then "connecting" etc etc.
