    BOLT Browser or Opera 5 on Storm

    Hey all, I'm not sure if this belongs here or in the Storm 9530 Device forum, so moderators, move this if you must, but I was just curious what third-party web browser people use on their Storm. I'm going to include:

    1. BOLT Browser
    2. Opera 5
    3. Standard BlackBerry Internet Browser
    4. Other

    I appreciate your input/feedback. Thanks!

    I'm sticking with my blackberry browser. I found bolt to difficult to browse through. Opera was great....I mean great, but I did not like the fact that it became my default browser for downloads. That took away my ability to download from text messages or BBM.

    I seem to remember being able to change the default browser for downloads and keeping it in the BlackBerry browser, but I could be mistaken (at least on the old Opera it used to ask you if you wanted to download in Opera or in BlackBerry browser.

    I guess my question is..... In the above poll, it asks what 3rd. Party Browser do you use if any. So why is there an option for the BB Browser? it should read Bolt, Opera, Other if there is any other one and None? Just curious as I am really liking the new Opera5 on .191 ..... yes it is a little slow but nice.

    +1 my friend, you make a good point, I did say THIRD PARTY BROWSER, but I figured that people who did not really pay attention to my question would have put BB Browser in with Other and with None so I wouldn't get the best poll data, and I really am curious to see, I guess, thinking about it, I would have asked which Internet Browser.

    i honestly hated bolt...i tried on 3 different occasions, but opera feels the closest to a dektop experiance to me, and i feel like it keeps the pages looking the way they were meant to.

    i still use the default when im looking for an app ota but when i wanna check bbos or even facebook sometimes opera is the way to go

    I use both the BB Browser and Opera. Bolt was completely unusable and just plain sucked the two times I've tried it. I don't understand why anyone would use that.

    Bolt was just not usable on the storm, but this new Opera is sweet, smooth, quick and clean, cant wait to see the finished product.

    Thumbs up Opera 5 is da Best!!!

    Until the new Iris browser comes out I'm sticking with the Opera 5 beta. It is way better than the Opera Mini 4.2 and Bolt on speed, intuitiveness, and everything. And of course it beats the pre-installs. Da Bears!
