Got a BlackBerry and Hate the Browser?

Do you have a BlackBerry? Do you despise the default browser?

Have you tried the Bolt Browser? Even better, have you downloaded the Bolt Browser plugin?

I’ve been using the Bold browser for a while now and it is so much better than the native browsers on the BlackBerry. Much faster and you can have tabs similar to Firefox and other “regular” browsers.

However, I was frustrated when I clicked links in tweets or BlackBerry messenger because they would open the default browser rather than Bolt. I just installed the plugin and now I have the option to open in Bolt! Hooray!

    Thank you! I abhor the native BlackBerry browser. Opera Mini is decent, but Bolt looks even better.

    How does Bolt compare to the Webkit-based browser that comes w/ all new BlackBerrys running OS6?

    @Tim – you’re welcome!

    @Gregg – I’ll let you know when I upgrade. Emoticon

    Thanks for this, Kathy! I downloaded BOLT and the plugin and I like it so far. I also have Opera Mini installed and like that too, except for the need to zoom all the time.

    Is there some configuration for the Launcher plugin? Sometimes I see Open in BOLT in the menu, other times I don’t.
