Haven't got to try it yet, has the cursor movement been improved?

I haven't tried previous versions, but I found it fairly poor.

Cursor seems improved but not perfect. The processing doesn't seem any faster than opera at least this morning.

Not much, at least not from my point of view. About wears out your thumb just to scroll to the other side of the screen.

I agree. Opera is still better. I do like the split screen feature

Installed messed with it for a little, cursor movement has improved.

Definitly a good step. (But still room for improvement, it more usuable at this point)

Opera Mini is still a need for file downloads at this point.

it has the same keys to move around as in opera, 4, 6, 2, 8. Which is what I usually use in Opera, much faster for the whiners about the trackball. Do you use the keys or trackball in Opera?

I'm about to delete it off of my curve. Cursor is unbearable, not to mention that trying to use the number keys to navigate is hardly reliable too. Some webpages seem to get 'stuck' and won't let me scroll to the right side of the page. I also noticed when trying to sign into some websites after entering information the page reloads and deletes what I just typed.

Basically, bolt blows.
