    Bolt 1.5 is official and out of BETA



    Thanks to the contribution of over two million beta testers, BOLT has gotten rid of their beta tag and proudly presents today's official release of BOLT 1.5

    Most of the upgrades are considered "under the hood". BOLT 1.5 is the most reliable and fastest browser out on the market.

    New Features:
    * Server upgrades (make v1.5 more than 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
    * Enhanced copy-paste support for BlackBerry 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


    Their site will be updated shortly to download the official 1.5

    OTA LINK!! Bolt Browser OTA LINK!!

    I also got the email about the 1.5 update, but when I launched Bolt I didn't get prompted to upgrade like the email stated.

    I will be interested to find out if this official release is any better than the versions I have used in the past. I found Bolt to be about as slow as skyfire and not very friendly navigation

    Version 1.4 was pretty slow, not as bad as skyfire but still pretty darn annoying

    I found Bolt to be worse than Skyfire. Maybe it was just cause I have an older device. But none the less I didn't like it.
