    FlashPeak SlimBrowser Loading and Surfing Speed

    Rating Average

    FlashPeak SlimBrowser Review - image SlimBrowser is a very fast loading browser. When you click to open the browser, it opens right up and loads your settings. Surfing is also fairly quick. This browser is about as fast as Firefox. I would say it is running neck and neck with the Opera web browser.

    FlashPeak SlimBrowser Tools

    Rating Average

    There are a wide variety of tools offered with the SlimBrowser browser. Some of the tools include tools which allow you to check your email from the sidebar. There are a few different email clients available with these tools. You can also have your weather displayed right in your sidebar. Some of the other tools you will find in this browser include local maps, auto form filling, proxy tools, and shortcut tools. The shortcut tools are really great. Right from your browser, you can go to any of the main folders on your computer.

    FlashPeak SlimBrowser Skins

    Rating Average

    SlimBrowser provides about 10 default skins for you to use. These are the skins that come with the browser when you download and install it. If you do not see a skin you want to use, you can open the SlimBrowser skin page and download and install more skins. The skins in this browser are easy to change. You simply click the skin you want to apply to the browser and it will automatically apply that skin. You do not have to restart your browser for the skin to be applied. That is a plus with this browser. Most browsers require that you close your browser to apply the skin, SlimBrowser does not.

    Unfortunately, there are no widgets available with this browser. However, all of your basic things that widgets normally do can be found in your tools panel, like the weather tools and email tools.
