Bitstream, the company behind the BOLT mobile browser, has announced the beta release of BOLT 2.0. The new web browser has tabbed browsing for multiple websites and also offers tighter integration with Facebook.
BOLT has been downloaded by over 5 million users since it was launched in February last year. It's been designed to deliver a PC-like browsing experience and streaming video on most current mobile phones, from feature phones to smartphones.
Anna Magliocco-Chagnon, president and CEO of Bitstream, said "Each new version of BOLT becomes more exciting to announce. We are closely listening to our end-users through our user forum, our Twitter and Facebook pages, and their comments on blog posts and articles, and they are guiding our development roadmap in important ways. It is this close relationship we are building with our users to which we attribute our stunning growth. BOLT added 1 million new users in the last five weeks alone."
