Bolt Browser has just been upgraded to Beta 2 and now brings better support for most BlackBerry smartphones, including the Storm. If your a Storm owner you will be happy to know that Bolt seems to be working much better on the device. Previously Bolt was horrible on the Storm and I wasn’t that impressed until now. Anyway Bolt Browser Beta 2 now has its own BlackBerry version and you can find the links below…
- – Significantly improved BlackBerry scrolling speed and control
- – A new 3XL (extra large) magnification mode with content 33.3 percent bigger than in 2XL
- – Double tap approach to select links on touchscreen devices like the BlackBerry storm (eliminates inadvertent clicks)
- – Wi-Fi auto-selection as default option when Wi-Fi is both enabled and available
- – Save and view pages locally on the phone
- – Support for folders in favorites
- – A new landscape viewing feature
- – Improved magnifier dragging in split screen mode on the BlackBerry Storm
- – Improved video quality on mpeg4 capable devices.
- – Lightweight encryption when HTTPS is disabled by the user — secures the user session by encrypting login and web page data. While not as secure as HTTPS, this offers much better security compared to unencrypted plain text.
- – Improved scrolling speed in image rich pages.
- – Double tap enhancements for switching between split and full screen
- – Improved BlackBerry Storm home page tab clicking
- – A user preferences page to reduce menu clutter – especially good on the BlackBerry since there we utilize the native menu structure (without sub-menus)
