Interface is good. has adblock which is a major plus. But I had allot of problems inporting my bookmarks from Seamonkey or Firefox. So I have to dock this a couple notches for that..

I don't use Internet Explorer, but when I have to or when I'm forced to, I choose this interface.

Likes:

Tool bars and icons, conventional menus, Win7 theme compatibility, decent popup filtering, spell check (but see dislikes)

Dislikes:

When opening a new group, it doesn't automatically close the current group (like FF and Maxthon do), nags you about Roboform, Most sites appear with very large fonts (Fileforum for 1) and I have to reduce the font size every visit. No search aliases (search bar is totally lame), Some menus are terribly long, and things are hard to find. Spell check requires a downloaded plugin, no inline spell check, no context spell check (you have to go to the top tool bar to activate it).

I'm being charitable giving it 2 stars. Don't waste your time.

This is a rally nice browser and it is not so full of junk to slow it down like other browsers. Works well, have had absolutely no problems with it at all. It is fast and has allot of what anyone needs. I often wonder with some of these browsers that brag about this and that, just how much is too much and how many plugins do you actually need and use to make it what you want. I suspect no matter what any browser maker does, some would not be pleased anyway.

Anyway, this is a very nice alternative and works well. Take some getting use too, but then, with anything it does.

Very nice browser. I have been using it for a few days now with no issues and has most everything anyone actually needs. Has not crashed yet like firefox does on me or freeze up like firefox does, but I like firefox also, so will continue to that too. But slimbrowser is very good and I intend on keeping it,fast, not sluggish at all, and not bloated like some.

I've been using this for about a week and so far am very impressed. This is going to replace Maxthon and Avant for me. Not as feature rich as those two but doesn't crash on me like Maxthon or Avant constantly do. I use K-Meleon CCF primarily but for sites that require IE Slimbrowser is the answer. You can disable Java,Javascript,Flash,cookies and ActiveX on-the-fly, a feature I find indispensible when visiting suspect websites. ActiveX is a favorite method of malware spreaders for drive-by installs.

It's because of the excellence of this program that I don't use Firefox. It's extremely fast and very customizible. I'd recommend this to anyone who uses IE 7 as their default browser.

I wouldn't use IE/Trident engine at all if this program was not available. It has built-in ad blocking, but I'm hoping SB will ad a subscription option to EASYLIST [adblocker] to really enhance this browser.

Mouse gestures; is not as important to me as others. I love this front-end. The aliases and the autologin features are the most valuable to me.

Can't recommend it. A plus is the fact that it works with WebEx Meetings (Avant, Maxthon do not). However, the dealbreaker is the missing mouse gestures. If I can't draw an "L" on the screen while holding down the right mousebutton and expect the current window/tab to close, I can't use the program - period. If you don't rely on mouse gestures, though, this might be the shell for you. For me, though, it's back to Greenbrowser. Oh, and to the guy flagellating himself madly about Firefox - try searching your HD for a file called urlclassifier3.sqlite and see if FF has dropped a 50Mb+ piece of crap on your system like it has for most other people..

This version worked fine on my retro Win98SE system, but the reason why I am not rating it higher than a 3 is due to the shell not working properly with my Password Agent password manager. When I tried to Autofill the username/password, it would automatically open either the Favorites menu or Help menu, which is very strange behavior!

Other than that, it's really not that bad of an IE substitute. Certainly has MUCH more merit than Maxthon, which so many people love on this forum, but I'm not one of them! Maxthon is buggy and does not deserve the high marks that it receives.

I actually use Slim Browser fairly regularly, but it still needs a bit of work, for instance:

not able to set default search engine, not able to use Google Toolbar....

It does have some almost-compensating features not found in other browsers though...for one, how Favorites display on multiple-screen setups...

Quick loading and great for AOL XM radio.. AOL radio doesn't work with Fire Fox 2.0.

SlimBrowser is the only IE based engine, that let IE7 looks like IE6. I don't like vista, and i don't like the outfit of IE7. So my choice: Stick with SlimBrowser & skin the damn IE7 back to IE6, where you find everything.
So ... i am a FireFox user, but i also take Opera, and SlimBrowser (IE). Mostly, i prefer FireFox, but form time to time, i use Opera.
Since the IE is the only browser, that shows tags correctly, sometimes i also use IE.

Yes, viruses through IE isn't often. But more infects through IE, as through FF and Opera.
Most time, you get Spy & Adware, if you surf with IE. Don't be foolish, that's the truth.

Since i use FF, Adaware finds nothing, my AV is tired & hangs around. Also my firewall is bored.

So, choice is up to you: FF, Opera, IE? My browser is known as FF. Maybe yours is Opera or IE. It doesn't matter. The fact is: Everybody should use the browser, that fits to him/her.
