Based on Internet Explorer, FlashPeakSlimBrowser has been added other functionalities to facilitate Internet navigation. Unfortunately, its interface looks rather cluttered just as it comes from out of the box. However, it is actually quite customizable and even allows changing skins.
The browser allows you to create groups of webpages. Let’s imagine you like to check various social networks every morning; if you put them together in a group, you can easily open them all with a single click. Also, the browser lets you view various pages as tiled windows and arrange them as you wish. Moreover, if you frequently change proxy configuration, you can configure various proxy servers and move easily from one to another. Other useful features are the availability of a built-in download manager, a spell checker in various languages, an add blocker and various translation tools.
The main limitation of this browser is precisely that it uses Internet Explorer´s rendering engine, which is known as not being as fast as those used by other browsers. However, you’re allowed to choose an IE version for each site to avoid compatibility issues.
In a few words, FlashPeakSlimBrowser has the advantage of being packed with features. Still, other popular browsers can add similar features just by customizing them with add-ons or extensions. The only difference is that FlashPeakSlimBrowser´s users save the efforts of finding the needed add-ons. Again, speed is this browser’s absolutely weakest point.
