Note: This review addresses v4.12 of the
Little-known SlimBrowser will surprise you with many of its
innovative features. Although not as feature-packed as Maxthon,
it’s still laden with nifty features. And it’s lightning-fast as
One of SlimBrowser’s more useful features is the ability to
create separate groups of your favorite Web pages, and then to
launch them all at once. So, for example, you may have a group of
your favorite news sites. Rather than having to open each
individually, you can open them all with a single click.
There’s also a built-in spell checker as well as an ad blocker.
And SlimBrowser has a particularly nifty feature for handling
multiple tabs. You can view all of your open Web pages as separate
tiled windows horizontally or vertically, and then move them around
and resize them. There’s plenty more, including the ability to view
pop-ups you’ve blocked, a Web page translator, and more.
Because it has so many features, its interface tends to be
cluttered and crowded, although it’s extremely customizable so that
you can make it far cleaner. It’s also skinnable, so you can
download skins to change the way SlimBrowser looks as well.
