Firefox and Internet Explorer are still dominating the browser world, but there are a lot of other similar apps out there that could do the same things at least as good as the two kings.
SlimBrowser is one possible solution for all people who want to try something new, and although it could sound a little bit impossible, it could even take the place of Firefox or IE in your heart.
The browser is based on the Internet Explorer engine, so it comes with all features bundled into Microsoft’s application, but also with a lot of other goodies that could make your browsing experience a lot more attractive.
First of all, it comes with tab support and although this isn’t such an innovative feature anymore, it’s still good that it’s there. Of course, there are several settings to modify tabbing behavior, so you can easily change the way you close or open a new tab.
But SlimBrowser has a lot more than that. It tackles the social networking frenzy pretty well with dedicated Facebook support to share a text, a link or update the status on the go, but at the same time it lets the user share a link on popular services such as Twitter or Google Buzz.
Popup blocking features are still there, so are the privacy ones to remove history and temporary files on the go, but one really great feature is the auto-form filler. This way, you can auto complete forms you find online automatically, so you don’t have to write down the same contact info over and over again.
In case you’re wondering what’s with the ad-supported flag that’s shown on Softpedia, it’s because SlimBrowser includes some add-ons, such as a custom search engine, that could help developers generate income when users access them.
But all in all, SlimBrowser is a pretty slim way of browsing the Internet, and as long as you don’t fall in love with Firefox or Internet Explorer, it would be a great idea to give this one a try too.
