This is the portable edition of SlimBrowser – a user-friendly and multi-tabbed web browser that features a popup killer and form filler, and delivers very good speed.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the program files somewhere on the hard disk and click the executable to run.
It is also possible to move SlimBrowser to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any computer with minimum effort.
What’s more, the Windows registry does not get new entries, and leftover files do not remain on the hard disk after program removal.
The interface is clean and comfortable to work with. You can import bookmarks from other browsers, capture the frame of the current webpage or selected area, use a spellchecker and select the language, as well as set translation languages.
In addition, you can organize groups and favorites, quickly fill dialogs with saved forms, the best match, current or selected identity, as well as share page content on various platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Gmail and Yahoo! Mail.
It is possible to manage Internet Explorer add-ons and open the current page with IE, enable popup and ad blockers, set alias definitions and assigned site names, as well as use a backup and restore service.
From the Options panel you can activate a built-in download manager, establish location details, ask SlimBrowser to clean web browser items on exit (e.g. address bar history, cookies, icon cache), set a master password, and more.
The application has a good loading speed and uses low CPU and RAM. It works smoothly and doesn’t cause Windows to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. All in all, SlimBrowser is a nice alternative to popular web browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Opera.
