    Not a huge fan of either, but I find the interface in Bolt to be a bit cleaner and easier to use. I also like the ability to install other language packs OTA through Bolt.

    Well ... personally I quite like Bolt for certain pages, ones that aren't designed to render on mobiles, and it seems to render them as intended for the most part. Opera I just couldn't get used to, it seemed slightly sluggish and I wasn't too keen on the interface generally.

    But I will say that both seem fairly archaic in terms of appearance, and even functionality to some extent. Maybe because they aren't designed with the BlackBerry in mind, or maybe just because of the fact it isn't 'native' like the Bold browser. Its a shame because sometimes I find myself just not bothering browsing because it can be a pain in the backside whenever javascript comes into the equation or finding links I can't follow through.

    Just my two cents though, Skyfire looked to be promising but they pulled the beta before I got a proper look so I'll have to hold out on commenting on that.

    I kept both on my BB for a long time and tried to like using them. I finally deleted them to get the memory back and use the BB browser. If it can't be done with that on a BB, I don't do it.

    I have a pearl flip, and Opera is sketchy. Bolt works great on that model.

    Sorry, I don't use either in all honesty. If I had to choose between the two, it would be Bolt. I use the native browser and have had zero issues with it, aside from the text-wrapping in form fields.

    I've used Bolt since the release and I love it... tried opera and hated it... for now I would say Bolt is the way to go... that is until SKyfire officially releases.

    Bolt is better for overall because it doesn't mobilize any sites. Its the actually real internet pages you see especially for search engine sites like yahoo where you are not automatically redirected to te mobile site. Bolt is still beta like and is annoying as it does make you close the browser and start over often...I don't have the freezing or having to close the browser problems with opera but you have to do quite a bit of scrolling down the page with opera, not the case with Bolt. I also do use the blackberry browser for some things, like when you want to view video or install an ota app as the other two browsers often do not redirect you correctly and won't work. I also cannot wait for skyfire...hurry up please.
