    I'll give it a try. When I had it on my BlackBerry it was horrible. Page rendering has not good and it was very laggy. I'll have to see how it does on Android.

    I'll try it. I used it on Symbian a while back and it was pretty good.

    When I had it on my Blackberry it wasn't to bad. The icons were to small for a touch screen phone. I will give it a try on mt HTC Evo and let you know what I think.

    No word wrap. That kills it for me.

    Just tried it out. Not bad but needs more options, user agent, etc. Also word wrap is working fine for me.

    EDIT: After messing with this for a while, here is my opinion. This browser is sloooooow. Way slower than my two most used browsers (Ninesky and Baidu). I don't have specific numbers, but opening the same Lifehacker article with all three browsers, Ninesky opened the article twice as fast as Bolt, with Baidu opening it just slightly faster than Ninesky.

    Also, though I DO like the looks of Bolt, it somehow looks funny to me. Like some Windows apps look when opened with WINE. It looks like a port instead of a native Android app if that makes any sense to anybody.

    Bolt has some good ideas, like the web apps feature that lets you open Facebook, Wikipedia, etc. apps in the browser instead of installing all the apps separately, but not enough to keep this as my daily driver.

    I'm going to keep this around to check out future updates, but, for now, it's not going to be getting much use.
