Portable Slimjet 18.104.22.168
We all know the big names that dominate the browser market with what seems to be an iron fist. Yes, it’s a battle of numbers and influence, but outside of it lay some interesting alternative browsers, one of which is Slimjet.
FASTEST WEB BROWSER THAT AUTOMATICALLY BLOCKS ADS
Tired of being watched all the time by big companies like Facebook or Google no matter where you go? You can rest at ease here. Rebuilt from the open-source Chromium project, Slimjet doesn’t send any usage data back to Google like Chrome. On top of that, Slimjet is armed with the most advanced anti-tracking technology to thwart various attempts to invade on your privacy (e.g., track your identity or profile your behavior) by the intrusive businesses.
Introduction to Slimjet – what you need to know
To put it as simple as possible, Slimjet is a lightweight alternative to Google Chrome, but interestingly enough, it’s also a lot more feature-packed.
In fact, Slimjet’s main “selling point” has to do a lot with the sheer amount of interesting features which make it fast, efficient, flexible, and most importantly secure and very stable.
We’ll get to the features a bit later, but for now, here’s what you need to know about Slimjet. It’s a Chromium-based browser that uses the Blink engine (same as Google Chrome).
While Chrome has a lot of proprietary media codecs and add-ons bundled within, Slimjet is clean as a whistle. Even though it uses the same engine, it doesn’t send data to Google. Lastly, it’s important to note that it’s (almost) fully compatible with Chrome extensions, plugins, and themes.
Onto the stars of the show – Slimjet’s awesome features
If everything above sounds good, then there’s a good chance you’ll love what will follow. Slimjet’s mission is to address some of the most annoying and pressing concerns while browsing the Internet.
This includes blocking off annoying ads thanks to its built-in ad-blocker (which also saves memory, CPU, and bandwidth). While we’re on the subject, it’s worth noting that Slimjet includes a series of advanced and customizable anti-tracking options.
Other noteworthy features include an intelligent form-filler (makes it easy for you to log in with just one click), an online video recorder (with options to edit and play offline for later), one-click Facebook integration, weather condition and forecast, instant photo uploader (automatically compresses photos to web-ready resolutions), and photo enhancement and framing support (via Photo Salon).
Additionally, you are provided with flexible web page translations, a proxy switcher, URL alias, the ability to quickly save a webpage screenshot, flexible tab control, and the option to stop all GIFs on the current page.
Another great feature is the YouTube Video Downloader. Just like its name states, it allows you to download videos from the popular platform to your local hard disk, and also extract the MP3 files from music videos.
Speaking of downloading stuff from the Internet, the browser also has a Hi-Speed Download Manager which allows you to resume download jobs between sessions and boasts support for multiple connections, meaning it’s very speedy.
So, here’s a recap: Slimjet – a Chromium-based browser that separates itself from Google’s servers and tracking shenanigans. It boasts a lot of useful features aimed at improving your experience, productivity, and privacy.
The one thing that Slimjet does not have is, as expected, the sublime Google integration. This means that by logging in using your Google account, you can’t sync history, extensions, passwords, bookmarks, and so forth. Thankfully, it works perfectly well alongside Google Chrome on the same system.
