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.

SlimBrowser (Gecko-based browser)

#1 Post by Midas » Mon Oct 13, 2014 3:42 am

[Moderator note: at the request of users, this has been split from the SlimJet thread.]

---

According to Softpedia, SlimBrowser (IE/Trident web rendering engine frontend, if I understand it correctly) has a recently updated "portable" version (changelog is at http://www.slimbrowser.net/en/whatisnew.htm):
The current SlimBrowser version is v7.00 build 108 and it appears good enough to deserve a special "Softpedia Edition" (see http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/B ... wser.shtml).

I know it's the same company, but, please, make a separate topic for it; it's easier to manage this way.

As I think SlimBrowser predates Slimjet and could find no topic for the former, I guessed it didn't really catch TPFC fancy, so I was just making it a footnote here.

But I have no objection whatsoever to a topic split, if webfork thinks it's due... :)

All their browsers deserve separate topics. They are actively developed and have completely different engines (and a nice set of features).

We are a small team focused on developing convenient and productive features on top of a browser engine. We don’t want to be tied up to a single engine in case it gets left behind by the others (think of How Nokia fared when it decided to tie itself solely to Windows Phone OS). We will let the big companies compete on the browser engine performance while we simply built features on top of the best engines to maximize user’s productivity.
I truly hope webfork agrees with me.

I do. It's been my preference to give every program it's own topic out side of a "lite/full" sort of arrangement. Combining different programs from the same developer has in the past been confusing.

Splitting ...

Topic update: Slimbrowser v11(.0.7.0; released 2019-11-04; changelog at https://www.slimbrowser.net/en/whatisnew.htm).

Confusingly, while the changelog above says Slimbrowser uses the Gecko engine (Mozilla/Firefox) from v11, the official FAQ still states that it uses Trident (Microsoft/IExplorer).

SlimBrowser is a fast and secure tabbed web browser for Windows fully loaded with powerful features. It saves you the burden of completing web forms with intelligent form filler. The built-in popup blocker and AD blocker eliminates annoying advertisement effectively. The quick-search feature provides you instant access to the major search engines and your own favorite ones. SlimBrowser is released under freeware license for both personal use and commercial use.
