Bolt has automatic updating, so existing Bolt users should be prompted to upgrade as soon as they open a page. New users can visit boltbrowser.com/download.html to register for the free beta and receive a download link.
I’m in the process of downloading the new Beta to my N95 and BlackBerry and will post a full review tomorrow.
