    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.

    "The only thing I can think of is PU"

    July 04, 2012   |   By desertdan1

    Version: SlimBoat 1.0.9

    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.

    Summary

    I tried it I uninstalled it! If you can't play well with others go home.

    "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.
