Editors' Review

+

There aren't that many Internet browsers. It was interesting to come across one that isn't as well-known or as well-advertised as the others: SlimBrowser. We can't say much about the security of this browser, since time will only tell, but it has some interesting features.

You can save all open sites as a Group, for example, which is a very convenient feature for anyone that has to regularly open the same sites simultaneously for work. There is also a Language tab, which connects you to Google in order to translate a page. It's not perfect, obviously, but it was nice to see a way to easily access such a feature. In File you can also view recently closed sites, which is nice for when you accidentally close the wrong page. You can change the skin of the browser, but most of the skins aren't aesthetically pleasing. It has a lot of the other, familiar features of other browsers so you wouldn't be missing out on those if you choose to give this a try.

Downloading this Web browser was easy. The installation was quick and easy as well. You can set up SlimBrowser to be your default browser during the installation process if you want to, but it's not required.

"It is just OK"

July 29, 2012  |  By grzley660

 |  Version: SlimBrowser 6.01 build 057

Pros

simple, easy to maneuver.

Cons

looks like IE. it is slow loading

Summary

I used it for 4 days and it is not a fast as they claim so after 4 days of use I uninstalled it..

Be advised if you use a program like Your Unin-staller! to uninstall this you still have to go to regedit and manually remove left over files, it seems to attach to everything in the registry.

"It's just IE without all the bells and whistles."

July 29, 2012  |  By browniejfb

 |  Version: SlimBrowser 6.01 build 057

Pros

lightweight, not slow BUT not fast either.

Cons

TOO much like IE. Thought it was going to be something new, BUT just IE with several things taken away.

Summary

IF you like IE, but need something a little faster, this is for you. BUT if you left IE to get a better browser, then don't bother with this one. Still too many things that were wrong with IE are still wrong with SlimBrowser.
