Slimjet 1.0.8 Beta


Recommended Posts

If you enjoy the speed and reliability of Google Chrome but don't like its lack of customizability and options, if you would like to have a browser which can do a lot more things in addition to opening web sites passively upon your clicks, if you would like to become more productive when you are doing online research, Slimjet is the perfect choice for you. Slimjet is based on the Chromium open-source project. On top of that, Slimjet integrates a lot of smart and convenient features so that you can get more done in much less time without taking the pain to hunt for external plugins. Slimjet also adds many options and settings so that you customize the browser appearance and behavior to best suit your own personal preference.
Slimjet is powered by the same Blink engine used by Google Chrome and fully compatible with all the extensions and add-ons designed for Chrome. Pretty much all the features available in Chromium are kept in Slimjet.

First, my confession:

I am not a fan of Chrome and not at all a fan of google's stuff.

That having been said - IF someone could make something like this browser that was a customizable as Firefox AND portable - then I might try to enjoy it.

Aside of those thoughts - looking at their site reveals links for Slimboat as well as Slimbrowser, which each have nearly identical sites/pages to Slimjet; this strikes me as rather odd ?!?
