"Crashes in a short time after opening"

August 26, 2014  |  By ckcomodo

 |  Version: SlimBoat Web Browser 1.1.38

Pros

Loads fast. Allows adblockers.

Cons

Generates exceptions within minutes for no reason and closes itself. Win 7 64 Home Premium. Uninstalled it, takes forever to remove as many, many files must be deleted. Programs that do not want to be removed entirely, you know what they are generally.

Summary

Un-recommended. Slim Browser from same source works a lot better and does not close arbitarily after loading.

"Not Google Chrome - Yeah!"

December 01, 2013  |  By StanAdams

 |  Version: SlimBoat Web Browser 1.1.38

Pros

Super fast web browsing, low memory and resource useage, built-in popup and ad blocker, master password protected password manager, pick your own skins, customizeable toolbar buttons.

I use SlimBoat (WebKit) and SlimBrowser (Trident) - both are super fast, use few resources, dependable, and neither is Chrome!

"Nice Browser"

October 08, 2013  |  By allinia325

 |  Version: SlimBoat Web Browser 1.1.38

Pros

I love this browser! So easy to use, just what I was looking for!

Cons

None at all.

Summary

Never freezes up on me which is a huge plus considering my previous browser was doing that all the time. So easy to set up and its very similar to what I'm used to. Very nice browser! I'm very happy with it!

"Try it for a month FIRST, and then write a review."

June 10, 2013  |  By walt970

 |  Version: SlimBoat Web Browser 1.1.33

Pros

Loads and refreshes fast when it's working.

Cons

Sorry, but I have been struggling with Slimboat for about three months and am giving up.

1. Crashes constantly in Win 7 and 8. Out of nowhere, for no reason, notifies you that it has stopped working and is going to create a dump file, which it does, and then shuts down.

2. Bookmark creation, organization, navigation and selection is a nightmare. If you have tried it out and can live with it good for you, because I'm giving up.

3. The right click menu is seriously truncated and missing key options available in other browsers.

4. Slimboat cannot maintain password verification. I use different sites in Google, for instance, which all should be logged in and accessible under a single password. Slimboat cannot maintain the login status and is constantly forcing me to re-enter the same password. It even forces me to re-enter the same password when navigating among portfolios when I have already signed into Google Finance. This alone makes it unusable to me.

Summary

Slimboat seriously needs to address some of these issues.

"Out Do's Google Chrome"

May 16, 2013  |  By EricVonZipper

 |  Version: SlimBoat Web Browser 1.1.31

Pros

Super fast. No need for adblocker or pop-up blocker - they are already built-in. Adblocker has a choice of EasyList or NZ Fanboy List - both excellent. Has DoNotTrack feature which you can tic if you wish. Translator, form filler, a real password manager - all built-in. Master password so you can keep others from using your browser or password manager.

Cons

No spell checker. Google Street View doesn't work very well.

Summary

Uses WebKit engine for lightning speed and excellent site rendering. Uses it's own user agent string so it should be difficult for hackers to crack into. A fun browsing experience, overall.

July 04, 2012  |  By desertdan1

Pros

None compared Firefox/ Chrome or Opera

Cons

Messy looking, complicated to much of every thing, also seems like a old version of webkit. Wouldn't work with gmail contacts.And wouldn't open facebook chat window.

"A very nice browser indeed!"

June 30, 2012  |  By mitchjmh

 |  Version: SlimBoat 1.0.8

Pros

I like the look and feel of it. Fast and responsive on sites.

Cons

Not finding an option to lock toolbars yet so I have the grid lines showing on toolbars but other than that everything is nice.

Summary

Made by the same company that does SlimBrowser. If you have tried SlimBrowser and like it, I highly recommend you check out this webkit version of it.
