"Very fast browser"

August 20, 2007  |  By Ramiller44

 |  Version: Slim Browser 4.10 build 009

Pros

Seems to have everything from IE and FF, once you figure it out!

Cons

Too many toolbars by default, not some of my favorite add-ons. Give me "Cool Iris" and I'll make it my default browser!

"Best one ever"

August 19, 2007  |  By chuckgosh

 |  Version: Slim Browser 4.10 build 009

Pros

Double-click on tab to close it, remembers open pages if anything crashes for any reason, browser is very stable. Click & drag tab to any position. Auto update reminder. Small icon bars, very flexible. I prefer it over Firefox (easier to close tabs). Obviously better that Internet Explorer 6 or 7.

"Best since Avant"

August 18, 2007  |  By LDJ2452

 |  Version: Slim Browser 4.10 build 009

Pros

After years of using Avant I finally got tired of waiting for them to fix their latest mess-up. Research led me to Slim Browser. It has so many more features than Avant. No more hitting the floating photo bar to enlarge a picture: they have an icon on the toolbar for just that reason. Search engines: tons to chose from, quick click and you're checking anything from ebay to yahoo, acronyms and dictioneries included. Edit webpages right there. Wide range of features to select for personalized toolbars. SB loads pages really fast! A big plus!

Cons

There are several choices to close page tabs. I often right click. I'm used to CLOSE being on the bottom of the dialog box. SB has it at the top. Hopefully they'll move it down soon.

"Best browser, period."

August 14, 2007  |  By sgrover

 |  Version: Slim Browser 4.10 build 009

Pros

This is the best of all the browsers. Does everything you want a browser to do, and ignores all the junk the other browsers foist upon you. Why is this wonderful browser not used by everyone?

Cons

Everyone should know about this. Obviously not enough promotion.

"This is very a very fast browser, but I can only give it 3.5 stars for now."

August 08, 2007  |  By Chainmail2006

 |  Version: Slim Browser 4.10 build 009

Pros

Maybe the fastest. It's customizable with many great skins. Imports all of my favorites and home page. But, like all IE based browsers, the newest version of "Java Runtime" doesn't work fully with it. Now, do I blame this on "Java" or the browsers? Who knows? But at times, I get a "Java" script error with this and all IE based browser. I do think it's the safest version of "Slim Browser" to date and like it a lot. It works great with "Vista" and it's installed on my computers. But because of these errors, I primarily use "Firefox" and "Opera" but neither is nearly this fast.

Cons

Still has to many tool bars by default. A couple have to be turned off to have more room in the browser to work.

"Awesome"

August 08, 2007  |  By mjgma

 |  Version: Slim Browser 4.10 build 009

Pros

I love the slimbrowser. Tabbed browsing without all the bulk of IE 7 and it is more compatible than Firefox for most applications. It's a quick download and easy install. I have it on my flash drive as well. I use at work and at home. I love the groups features and the ability to store logins. with my job I usually have 12-15 applications running simultaenously slimbrowser allows me to keep them organized without having to have 15 windows open and trying to figure out which one is which. The current version has a lot of great features for organization. I definitely recommend this browser for home and for work.

"My browser of choice."

August 08, 2007  |  By cybersam

 |  Version: Slim Browser 4.10 build 009

Pros

I like the popup blocker, the autologin and group features as well as the tabbed windows. I've been using SlimBrowser for about six years now, so I'm not really aware of what other browsers carry the same features at this point, but I'm pretty comfortable with this one.

Cons

I've been having problems with the browser crashing on sites with video or heavy flash content, but using IE instead doesn't seem to work any better. I have an older system and I've been swapping out graphics cards quite often lately so I don't know enough to say it's a problem with the software.
