Update for BlackBerry’s BOLT Browser

December 7, 2009, By Radimir Bobev


BOLT – the browser for the BlackBerry – has just been updated to version 1.6, bringing lots of changes, mainly directed at improving the browser’s performance. Rendering is now 15% faster, and improvements have been made to the secure login procedure, making it much quicker.

Another improvement is the addition of a password manager, which, very much like the ones on desktop browsers, allows you to easily access your password-restricted accounts on various websites, without having to type in the password every time. Memory handling is now also better, allowing users with lower-end phones to use the browser more efficiently.

The browser now also integrates itself with the BlackBerry’s OS more tightly, automatically setting itself as the default browser for opening links coming from plain-text e-mail and SMS/MMS. Overall, most of the improvements were much needed and BlackBerry users will surely appreciate the support they’re being given. The browser is still being heavily developed, so we should expect to see more similar improvements in the near future.

BOLT remains absolutely free for use, and ever since it was released in February this year, its popularity has been steadily on the rise.
