I wrote a few days ago about Pale Moon (https://www.techsupportalert.com/content/pale-moon-new-web-browser-far-n...), an alternative Web browser for Windows. Thousands of you liked it, so here's another one to try.
Slimjet is a free browser that you can download from www.slimjet.com. Like many others in the market, it's based on the Chromium engine. It's in good company, because Google's Chrome is too. And Slimjet has a number of handy features. It has a built-in ad blocker, to help preserve your bandwidth and avoid distractions. It integrates neatly with Facebook, providing some extra features. And, purely aesthetic but interesting nonetheless, its tabs are a little less rounded than the default Chromium ones. Not as square as Internet Explorer or Firefox, but not as rounded as Chrome. Which I think happens to look rather nice.
Slimjet is free and, unusually for browsers, is available as a portable option if you want it. Just download the file, run it to decompress it, then double-click the application icon to try the browser. Nothing gets added to your PC's registry, so you can simply delete the downloaded folder if you don't like it, and every trace of the application will be gone. This also means that you can keep it on a USB stick and run it on multiple machines if you want, or keep it in Dropbox or OneDrive in order to do the same.
Slimjet is a 48 MB download. The site is rated as reputable by Web of Trust. Only one of VirusTotal's 67 scanning engines regards it as suspicious, which is undoubtedly a false alarm and you can safely regard the program as being safe to use.
Like all browsers, Slimjet works happily alongside any other, so it's perfectly safe to try Sllimjet even if you currently use Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, or anything else. You don't need to limit yourself to just having one browser on your computer, despite what Microsoft likes to imply!
