I am. I've been an on-and-off user of Bolt since they first came out with a browser for BB. I must say that with each update, they have been improving on their product. Before, I would always end up going back to Opera Mini 4.2 because it was faster, and I was generally used to all the controls. But with this latest version, I may seriously consider jumping ship from Opera.

The speed is definitely as fast as Opera (on socket mode), and the tabbed browsing is also an excellent feature. I tried Opera Mini 5 for a brief period, and found it to be sluggish on my older device. Always saw the hourglass. The cursor control and movement on OM5 isn't very good either. No such problems on Bolt 2.11 with multiple tab browsing or curosr controls.

Some of the touchpad phones such as mine dont work properly with Opera so Bolt is more of an option

You mean Opera Mini 5 (as opposed to 4.2) right?

Yes on 5. I don't remember if I installed 4.2. Pardon me if I misspoke.

You didn't mis-speak. Just wanted to make sure we were talking about the same version.

I definitely prefer Opera when working. Probably because it came out first.

Been using Bolt almost exclusively since I got 2.11. I still prefer Opera (4.2) as well. Though tabbed browsing on Bolt comes in handy sometimes. Looks like I'll be keeping both in the meantime. Opera has stopped working completely twice this month already. Good to have a backup browser haha.

Is anyone having problems with bolt and facebook since 7/21?
Just recently facebook changed something and now when I go to my profile all it shows is a blank page. I used my bookmarks to see other profiles and its blank too. Facebook is the only site I have problem on, before 7/21 everything was working fine.
I cleared out memory, cache, checked settings and think facebook change something.
Can you guys check to see if you have that problem and if not what should I do?
I'm still running on the 8100.
Thx
============
Ok, I found out that other people are having the same problems from another forum
This sux

Hope its ok to ref this

Haven't had any problems with FB on Bolt 2.11. Works fine for me. I can even post links or updates from the browser to FB!

Would somebody using Bolt mind trying a link for me? It's an article from the LA Times : 'Jailbreaking' Apple iPhones is legal, government says - latimes.com.

For some reason, when I try to go to that address in Bolt, it takes me to the general Times site rather than to the specific article. Problem doesn't happen with Opera or desktop browsers.

I contacted Bolt support and they said they had no problems getting to it.
