I find it almost unusable on the Storm. The cursor positions under your finger when you touch the screen. Thus, your finger obscures the exact position of the cursor. When there are multiple small links on the page, close together, it's nigh-on impossible to activate the exact one you want.

The way the BB Browser works (on the Storm) is MUCH better in this regard. For one, the cursor display above/beside your finger, so when you're touching the screen, you can see EXACTLY what link you're selecting. And two, just touching the screen doesn't activate the link. You have to actually click the screen. With Bolt, just touching and releasing the screen activates the link, so if you *could* see which link you were touching, you still wouldn't be able to keep from activating it, if it was the wrong one.
