BOLT mobile browser renders its billionth web page

The BOLT mobile internet browser from Bitstream has rendered over a billion web pages. Launched in February 2009, it's now used by more than 7.3 million people in over 200 countries and has also streamed more than a thousand years of video.

As with rival mobile browsers from Opera and Skyfire, BOLT offers desktop-style page rendering by transcoding data via the company's own servers. It supports HTML5 & Flash video and is compatible with most mobile phones.

Anna Magliocco-Chagnon, CEO of Bitstream, said "In July of last year Bitstream announced that BOLT climbed past 100 million Web pages rendered. The first 100 million pages are always the hardest. At our current rate of usage, BOLT servers are rendering 100 million Web pages every two weeks, and that rate is accelerating. BOLT is now drawing new users faster than 1 million every month, another rate that is also accelerating. It’s extremely gratifying that after all our hard work and our dialogue with our users, we’ve built a mobile application that is highly reviewed, award-winning and popular around the world."
