Our Review:

The folks at FlashPeak have created this lightweight browser SlimBoat in addition to SlimBrowser.

SlimBoat is similar to SlimBrowser in appearance but its core uses Webkit. SlimBoat has key features that include Site Groups and Social Networking. With Site Groups you can create groups of tabs for various websites to open all at one time. For example all your favorite news sites can be grouped so in one click they all open on individual tabs without selecting them individually from your favorites.

The Social Networking has two functions. Web page sharing to all the popular sites like Facebook and Twitter or e-mail, and a Facebook button to quickly post web pages, web page text and images or your status by clicking a button and not having to login to your Facebook account.

For a browser that is only on version 1, it's packed full of features in a lightweight format.

Unfortunately SlimBoat will no longer be further developed due to the performance and compatibility issue of the QtWebkit engine.
