Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Or SeaMonkey. I still use it.
Although I think that K-Meleon and SeaMonkey have too few extensions for smaragdus
, given that he's not happy about Pale Moon having broken compatibility with some Firefox add-ons.

Any Chromium-based browser is spyware, no doubts.
Everything from Google is spyware, it was designed as spyware from the start, including any Electron-based app, even third-party.

The word "spyware" is a little too harsh. (The following thoughts are only based on the Neocities article.)
* Slimjet just didn't remove Google APIs like Translate and Extensions. Those are quite handy features to have.
* They do use Bing, but what browser doesn't bundle some form of search engine in order to make some money?
* The requests to the gvt1.com domain are to determine if DNS queries are "truthful": https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/is ... 20Modified
. Basically, to see if your DNS requests have been modified by malware.
I should note that I don't use Slimjet myself!
is it stealth?
