Bitstream has just announced that a new version of their BOLT browser has just been made available for download, namely BOLT 2.0 Beta. The new flavor of the application comes around with tabbed browsing as the main new feature, but a wide range of other enhancements too, meant to greatly improve the experience BOLT can deliver to its users.
“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,” Anna Magliocco-Chagnon, president and CEO of Bitstream, stated.
As most of you might already know, the browser can offer a great navigation experience to its users, and the previous releases of the application, with all the features they brought along, proved just that. The new solution comes with all the familiar features of the older BOLT, along with newly introduced features, offering users the possibility to run Web-based applications, to enjoy fast download speeds, built-in integration with Twitter and Facebook, or the support for Twitter and Facebook it includes.
Here's what the company says about the new BOLT 2.0 beta: “Thanks to the tremendous response and great feedback we've received from the BOLT user community, we are happy to announce that we are releasing BOLT 2.0 with a host of new features and optimizations designed to improve usability and stability, including:
- Support for Tabbed browsing
- Facebook integration - post messages, links or URLs from any page displayed in BOLT directly to your Facebook account without navigating away from the currently viewed page.
- Support for Facebook chat and other web-based chat apps."
