    "A Software In Decline"

    December 1, 2010  |   By robmanic44

    Version: SlimBrowser 5.0 build 138

    Pros

    This is still the best of the IE add on browsers. Its ease of use and safety features are the reason it's on my desktop.

    Cons

    This is another program that should be 64 bit. It doesn't react well to Java and error messages are the norm instead of the exception.

    Summary

    I see a large migration to Google Chrome unless some changes are forthcoming to this product. The inability to fully uninstall this software without leaving residue is becoming very tiresome. Unless changes are made soon the use of this software will be a thing of the past.

    Updated on Dec 9, 2010

    Unless and until there is a 64 bit version of this browser it's essentially useless. It crashed every time I tried to access my email. The only plus was that it uninstalled without leaving a residue. Works well with Windows XP, but with Window 7 64 bit it was a total failure.

    "fast,safe,easy,tabs it's pretty nice but unknown"

    December 1, 2010  |   By gman21858

    Version: SlimBrowser 5.0 build 138

    Pros

    tabs interface quick and easy to view multiple pages at once, does not bog down system. Lots of useful tools, check it out

    Cons

    Not accepted by some web sites and it doesn't like it when you go to play games and the game site doesn't have any nor do some other regular sites what is that it doesn't have, acceptance.

    Summary

    This is as good as firefox,chrome,IE8,and others. No one uses it for some reason. I think it's because every one else is using the main stream browsers.

    "A VERY FAST BROWSER"

    November 30, 2010  |   By cybersenior01

    Version: SlimBrowser 5.0 build 138

    Pros

    Much faster than virtually all other browsers. Supports the Roboform password magr, which is VERY important to me.

    Cons

    On some pages it only displays placeholders for some graphics and I've yet to find out why

    Summary

    If you don't want to wait on IE (any version) or Firefox (all newer versions) to load, then use Slimbrowser. It supports all the important plugins. Just wish they would make it easy to turn off the substituting of placeholders for some graphics on some web pages.
