SlimBoat is yet another multi-tabbed web browser that integrates some powerful features which focus on speed, stability and plug-ins.
The interface of the tool is clean and familiar. So, you can add and manage bookmarks, translate the current page or selected text, add and organize groups, as well as view and access the thumbnails of the last opened pages.
SlimBoat packs an autofill form feature - with the best match, saved forms, the current identity or identities. From the 'Tools' menu, you have direct access to some Facebook functions (share your status, page or selected text).
But the tool also lets you share a page on Twitter, Google+, StumbleUpon, Blogger.com, Wordpress.com, Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo Email, from the same menu.
Additional features of SlimBoat let you manage downloads, enable a web inspector, download all content from the current page, enable ad and popup blockers, customize aliases for URLs and assign site names.
By accessing the 'Settings' panel, you can configure startup options (e.g. restore last open sites, open a specific page or group), make the tool clean items (e.g. browser history, cookies, icon cache), customize the weather display in the status bar, just to name a few.
The web browser has a good navigation speed and response time, uses a moderate amount of system resources, and includes user documentation. We have not come across any problems during our evaluation; SlimBoat did not freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs. Less experienced users can quickly get familiarized with SlimBoat's features.
