CNET Editors' review
SlimBoat Web Browser for Mac features a rather basic interface and design, but allows for secure, fast, and above all, fun Web browsing. The browser is light, performs well, and offers a decent alternative to the more popular mainstream options.
After installing, the free browser opens and requests the user to set it as the default program. In addition, the application asks the user to import bookmarks from other browsers, and lists all of them on the computer. After importing cleanly, SlimBoat Web Browser for Mac starts up, and its main window is well thought out. As is typical on other browsers, the top displays navigation buttons, a URL area, and a search field. Tabs are displayed just above the main browser window, and are clearly labeled for identification. Users can add new ones not only from a top drop-down, but also from the window, itself. The browser offers basic design but includes a number of useful features such as built-in ad blocker, built-in pop-up blocker, form filler, ability to organize sites in groups, support for easy sharing on popular social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, and Google Plus, as well as the ability to download videos from YouTube, quickly and easily. During testing all features performed well and pages loaded quickly without any errors. Testing also did not reveal pop-up ads to be a problem.
The number of browsers available, both mainstream and new, makes choosing a truly unique and functional one difficult. SlimBoat Web Browser for Mac works well, offers some interesting features and would be a good solution for users looking for an alternative to mainstream browsers. It is also worth considering for those who are just looking for an easy way to download videos from YouTube.
