      Slimjet I have found is the best alternative to Chrome. It's fast & light and you can use all of Chrome & google extensions

      One thing I miss from Firefox is the Bookmarks side panel. Slimjet has one if you press Ctrl+I although you can't drag-and-drop from the URL to the side panel. The main reasons I run Slimjet is an alternative to my company's modified version of Chrome on my company laptop, so I have my own profile loaded instead of my work profile, and because it seems to handle some sites better than Firefox.

      henkeMe This app does not have the look and feel of a modern web browser. Certainly not a serious replacement for Google Chrome. It is lacking in far too many features (shortcuts and more) to be a viable alternative. Useless toy? Or a bad practical joke? Try the Iridium browser and see if you understand what I mean!
