    I would download it to check it out. I have noticed an increase in speed for the internet. The user format is still the same, so if that is something that was an issue for you before, then I would not download. I loaded BBOS and I thought it was taking awhile to load, but when it did there was full pictures and everything. I compared it to my BB Browser and the BB is much slower.

    Just thought I'd mention that it appears no digital signature is associated with the D/L. That might freak some people out.

    Correct. There is no digital signature with the download but people should not be freaked out about it, because it is the real deal.

    Tried it

    and it is fastest out of BB browser and Opera Beta but, the reloading of the page when you are going from horizontal to vertical has not been resolved on the Storm.
    Also, you have to manually un-hide and hide the keyboard when going to a url.
    I will stay with Opera beta.

    You don't have to hide and unhide the keyboard. Go into preferences and uncheck "inline editing" this will help you pull up the keyboard every time.

    I'll have to download 1.5 and see if the app has changed any, but I don't have any hopes for it as every other version I've tried it has been unusable.

    ok...my bad..after the battery pull everything is good...except it's not very user friendly with storm due to the fact that there is not literal keyboard..and it doesnt work well with a reduced surepress keyboard...you have to have full keyboard to type easily...its quick though

    Glad you got your fix! Sorry for not getting to you in time.

    It's significantly better than the last time I used the browser. It's fast. But I still really dislike the UI and the font.

    Didn't like it before and don't like it now! I'll stick with Opera Beta.

    Still very slow IMO. It has potential but quite a long way to go before I will consider it my daily driver.

    I like Bolt but I really hate having to press the BB button in order for the keyboard to pop-up whenever I need to type something.
