If you enjoy the speed and reliability of Google Chrome but don't like its lack of customizability and options, if you would like to have a browser which can do a lot more things in addition to opening web sites passively upon your clicks, if you would like to become more productive when you are doing online research, Slimjet web browser is the perfect choice for you. Slimjet is based on the Chromium open-source project. On top of that, Slimjet integrates a lot of smart and convenient features so that you can get more done in much less time without taking the pain to hunt for external plugins. Slimjet also adds many options and settings so that you customize the browser appearance and behavior to best suit your own personal preference.
Slimjet is powered by the same Blink engine used by Google Chrome and fully compatible with all the extensions and add-ons designed for Chrome. Pretty much all the features available in Chromium are kept in Slimjet. The table below only shows the list of additional features added by Slimjet.
Chrome comes with a basic password manager, just like the one available in IE and Firefox. We have implemented a more advanced form filler branded as "QuickFill" in Slimjet. Here is a brief comparison between the default password manager and QuickFill:
|Default password manager||QuickFill Form Filler|
|Data saved||Save only user name/password||All the data in a given form|
|Open Saved Page||No||Yes|
The navigation toolbar in Chrome has only a few fixed buttons, i.e., back/forward/reload/home. Slimjet has added a lot of additional buttons to the navigation toolbar so that you can access different features easily and quickly. The visibile buttons on the toolbar are customizable so that you can keep only buttons you need to avoid wasting screen area. To customize the toolbar, click the arrow button at the right end of the toolbar and select "Customize toolbar..." from the popup menu.
So, you like sharing photos online. Isn't everybody doing that nowadays with the popularity of social networking? I bet you would like to present the photo you took to your friends in the most beautiful way. If you want to do some touch-ups or add some decorations to the photo, you would most probably have to resort to professional photo-editing software such as Photoshop. That would cost you a small fortune and it's inconvenient as well. Or you are tired of the long time you have to wait while uploading a lot of large photos.
For all these problems, Slimjet has an answer for you with integrated on-the-fly photo processing. We call this feature "Photo Salon". The Photo Salon is able to do the following things:
What makes it so beautiful and elegant is that all these processing is done on-the-fly when you are just about to upload your photos. With only a few mouse clicks, the enhanced photos are created and uploaded with a much faster speed. The original high resolution photos are not at all impacted. You no longer have to open external software, do the editing over there and save it to a file one by one.
Do you have a hobby of sharing photos online every day among your circle of friends online? Nowadays photos are usually taken with cameras with 10M Pixels or higher. The size of the photo files are usually 5MB or larger. It will about a full minute to upload a single photo. If you have a lot of photos to upload, the waiting time can be quite long.
Slimjet can dramatically cut down the time taken to upload photos by automatically compressing the photos to a reasonable resolution for web-sharing purpose before uploading the photos. You need a high resolution to print photos on a large sheet. However, when you share photos online, usually only 1M pixels are enough due to limited resolution of most monitors. In addition to resizing the image files, Slimjet also does better compression of the image files for the same resolution with hardly discernable information loss. For most photos, the image files are 10x to 20x smaller after applying automatic compression. You will need only a few seconds to upload most photo files.
The target resolution for automatic compression is customizable by users on a per-domain basis so that users can either save more time or keep more resolution in the image files based on their personal needs.
Slimjet provides a built-in weather forecast feature so that you can view your local weather condition directly in the browser without opening any website. All you have to do is add the weather button onto the navigation toolbar and set up your location information. After that, you will see your local weather condition and current temperature directly on the button.
The URLs of many web sites are long and hard to remember. It's also painful to type them in full in the omnibox. You can create a bookmark for it. However, the number of bookmarks you can put on the bookmark toolbar is quite limited. A good approach to this problem is to create a short alias mapped to the original URL. After the alias is defined, you can simply type the alias from the omni box to reach the destination web site quickly.
What makes the alias feature in Slimjet more powerful is that you can even define aliases to open a QuickFill form file, or set it to open all bookmarks under a bookmark folder like a site group.
For example, you can type "fy" in the omnibox and the site http://finance.yahoo.com will show up as the first match. All you have to do is to press enter to go to the Yahoo Finance website.
There is already translation feature available in the Chrome browser. However, it's limited and not really flexible. It basically only lets you translate a full page from a foreign language into your current UI language. In comparison, Slimjet lets you translate any page between any two languages. What's more, you can translate only a selected word or piece of text in the current web page between two specified languages.
In order to use the translation feature in Slimjet, you need first add the "Translate" button onto the navigation toolbar by customizing the toolbar. Clicking on the translation button and you will get a drop down menu.
If you select the "Translate current page" menu, you can translate the entire web page. Otherwise, you can select a piece of text and then select the "Translated selected text" menu to translate the selected text. The translation for the selected text will be shown in a small window.
If you want to translate a lot of words in a given page, you can turn on the mode of "Auto Translate Selected Text". After that mode is turned on, you can select any text in the page and the translation will automatically come up when you release your mouse button.
On top of the existing options available in Chrome, Slimjet has added a lot more options and settings to make the web browser more customizable and flexible to best address the needs of different people. We don't believe in one-size-fit-all. Instead, Slimjet is designed with the best default settings for most people while providing options for users to customize it to suit their own personal preference.
Here is a brief list additional options added in Slimjet to give user more control on the behavior of the web browser,
