Bolt Browser Beta Goes Public with an Update


So, the quickly famous proxy browser Bolt is now officially out of private beta.  Bolt started as a small private beta, but with the help of the blog world quickly turned into a 30,000 user private beta!  Bolt is a very quick mobile browsing alternative.  One issue I have with it though is that if you are not on a Storm, 8900, or Bold, the application runs very slow.  This new update should have some fixes and optimizations for BlackBerries.  It is pretty stable now.

Here is a list of features for this BOLT public beta:

  • Fast, secure, desktop-style web browsing on both high-end and low-end handsets
  • Streaming flash video capabilities
  • WebKit rendering engine offers high standards compliance
  • Support for XML, ATOM and RDF formats of RSS feeds
  • Support for JavaScript and AJAX
  • Split screen and full screen modes for easy navigation and viewing
  • Intuitive keystroke shortcuts for easier navigation and content selection
  • 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption for secure access to web pages
  • Server filtering to protect users from spyware and other malware
  • Certificate error notification
  • Easily add and select favorites and view browsing history
  • Ability to clear history and cookies
