Good dedicated browser for webdevelopment based on chromium webtools. I needed a standalone browser that was not chrome, since that is where I do my websurfing. I didn't want to log into anything google related for convenience reasons.
It had to be based on chromium though, firefox tools generally outputs too much information (and renders slower) when you inspect a site.
Things I've tried:
Note that slimjet is based on older versions of chromium so it might not have the latest and greatest chromium tools but its good enough anyways. Bonus of slimjet is that it looks different from chrome out of the box, and it doesn't have an ugly unreadable theme to it.
Slimjet is also extremely fast as well.
Some cons of slimjet is that it has some toolbar bloat but it can be removed very easily
More lightweight than chrome ! You can use for all websites without add plugins, extensions or applications additionnal ! Opera need adobe flash player !
A bitter truth about Slimjet browser
"If you are using the Slimjet browser, you should be careful with the selection of the default search engine at the moment. Slimjet developers has buried a nasty trick behind the offered Bing search engine entry – there is a redirection to fpseek.com.
The Slimjet browser is a Google Chrome browser clone, that has been enriched with helpful additional functions like popup blocker etc. The browser can be downloaded free of charge from the website www.slimjet.com/en/. The developer of this browser is the Austin, Texas (USA), based software producer FlashPeak Inc.
But something is ‘going on’ with Slimjet browser since version 18. Yesterday I reported a mysterious thing about Slimjet browser. The developers seems to installing something mysterious on selected user systems (see blog post Is FlashPeak Inc. shipping Slimjet browser with a backdoor?). Today I like to address another ‘not so noble’ surprise found in Slimjet.
Search enging Bing is redirected via fpseek.com In the Slimjet you can click in the upper right corner on the gear icon (settings) and go to Settings in the opened menu. Further options can be shown using the Advanced hyperlink visible at the bottom of the page. In the Omnibox group then you can switch between different search providers like Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo and so on, using the address bar’s list box.
If you click on the triangle at the right margin of the Manage search engines option, you will reach the following page. There are the search engines, the search abbreviation and the query URL are listed.
And there is a rather strange query URL entered at search engine provider Bing (see the red arrow in the screenshot above). The URL points to fpseek.com and cannot be changed. My first thought: There is a browser hijacker that has changed the settings. [...]
What is fpseek.com?
Developed by ClientConnect Ltd., fpseek.com is a fake Internet search engine that supposedly enhances the Internet browsing experience by generating improved search results. Initially, fpseek.com may appear legitimate and useful, how ever, this site is promoted via rogue download/installation set-ups designed to modify web browser settings without users’ permission. In addition, fpseek.com continually tracks Internet browsing activity by gathering various user/system information."
I've been using it for a long time. that is, if it is made more stable, the use of cpu may lower. but I've always loved it! can be sided comment! 32 bit is nice but there are many shortcomings about 64 bit. these neutral truths and those tabs in the background will drive me crazy. not removed. speak square frame square frame. =) About the update. insufficient.
so I'm currently using yandex with opera. but I do not delete my icon !! It is another simple to use quick beaut. at least certain of what is going on.

Polished and fast, perhaps questionable. Offers AdBlock (not my favored).
Slimjet is very good alternative to chrome browser and the only browser I found, can fully sync with google chrome including bookmarks and passwords
Fast startup, fast to load pages, block ads, manage downloads.
When I look for a browser, I look primarily at these items first:
One thing that Chrome is prone to, is malware, since 80% of the market uses chrome. I may try to install malware just to see if it is as likely to collect malicious add-ons.
I think I found my replacement for Opera, which was working well but started feeling like an itch I can't scratch.
their translation and ad blocking is very successful and does not force ram memory. but the icons seem a bit rough. aesthetic .
