Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

BOLT is a free downloadable java based browser that offers an uncompromised browsing experience on even lower-end mobile phones.

Rather than offering a simplified, mini version of the Internet, BOLT provides users with a fast, efficient, feature-rich way to enjoy full PC-style web pages and rich media applications on all levels of mobile devices.

Built on Bitstream's ThunderHawk browsing technology, BOLT is the result of 5+ years experience developing mobile browsers that optimize usability, speed and performance on resource-constrained systems with limited memory, processing power and screen space.

My opinion is that, on some level, BOLT Browser by Bitstream is better than Opera Mini and a little faster than this one. Although it's only in Beta testing process and the software download can be made only if u subscribe to the beta testing using an email address, I still think that this browser has a very promissing future.

To try it yourselves, go to http://www.boltbrowser.com/download.html, subscribe using your email address, follow the few steps required for email verification and enjoy!

The software has been successfully tested on my Nokia N82.
