Chromium-based Slimjet Browser Offers More Features and Better Customizability
Slimjet features a customizable toolbar which allows users to add more buttons to gain quick access to various convenient and powerful features. For example, the Facebook button allows users to share their online activities among their friends on Facebook with a single click. The translation button allows the user to translate a page or a piece of text between any two languages. The weather button lets the user see the local weather condition right on the toolbar without opening any website. The toolbar´s position can also be adjusted by the user.
Slimjet integrates a full-featured form filler called QuickFill which replaces the basic password manager available in Chrome. QuickFill lets users save the web page link and the login information together as a form file. Users can simply select the form file like a bookmark and Slimjet will open the page, fill in the login information and submit the form automatically. With QuickFill, users can log into their favorite online accounts in the most efficient way, without relying on third-party form filler plugins.
Slimjet automatically compresses photos being uploaded to a reasonable resolution to increase photo uploading speed by up to 20 times. It also includes a Photo Salon feature which allows users to add frame images and other enhancement effects to photos being uploaded so that the shared photos appear more impressive among their friends. Both features work seamlessly with any photo sharing websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Flickr.
A lot of options and settings have been added in Slimjet to increase its usability and customizability. For example, a dedicated section of options has been added to give users more control in terms of the tab behaviors. In the New Tab page, users are given the options to change the number of quick-dial buttons, change the background image or quickly switch the search engine. In the proxy manager, users can define a list of proxies and quickly switch between them. In addition to that, Slimjet is made compatible with all plugins and extensions designed for Chrome so that users can extend Slimjet with their favorite plugins and apps.
