I tend to use Bolt for most things now. I still use the BB browser for this site and for YouTube.

I no longer have Opera Mini installed.

Not yet someone will come along with it though..

Some highlights for me.

BB Browser:

1. Fast Browsing on Mobile WAP sites.
2. Some Banks offer mobile sites to manage accounts.
3. Security, while the other application offer security I trust BB security over the 3rd party apps.

Cons:

4. File download size limit (2.9 MB I beleive)
5. No way to import bookmarks
6. Non-Mobile pages tend to load very slow.
7. Various pros from the other browser that this browser lacks.

Opera Mini:

1. 1st 3rd party BB Browser.
2. Good Desktop feel.
3. Has a mobile view so you don't have to scroll back and forth.
4. Ability to download files directly to your Media Card (movies/podcasts/etc, anything over the 3 MB BIS limit, which is a big plus for me)
5. Book Mark sync with your desktop.

Cons:

6. Doesn't render as fast as Bolt.
7. Still automatically sent to Mobile friendly sites, instead of the real deal/mccoy.

Bolt:

1. It's the newest browser and in Beta.
2. Exetremely quick rendering.
3. Very usable with the last update.
4. Sent to the real site instead of the mobile site if their is one.

Cons:

5. No Book mark sync.
6. No file download option.
7. No mobile view.
8. Cookies are not stored forcing you to login everytime.

If I missed anything let me know and I will update the post.
