The BOLT browser is now out of private beta and is ready to be installed on to your Android phone. The BOLT browser is said to offer the fastest page loads of any browser on Android, 25% to 50% faster than the competition. The software supports pinch-to-zoom, tabbed browsing, URL auto-complete and a social tab that brings you an always-on connection to Facebook.

With the BOLT browser, pages render just as you see them on your desktop PC and the browser gives you video support for YouTube, ESPN, CNN and more even if your phone does not have Flash installed. Flash and HTML5 video can be viewed with "adaptive compression" for quick viewing.

The BOLT browser also allows you to save web pages and images to use offline. The browser uses WebKit based "cloud-computing architecture" and is available for free in the Android Market for those using Android 2.1 or higher.

Yeah, that's not even close to accurate, at least on my phone. You have time to make a sandwich between page loads (a good sandwich too, not just a pb&j).

Is anyone else seeing this?

It is, however a very nice looking browser with some great features. Even the devs of dolphin HD could learn a few things about aesthetics here.
