SlimBrowser is a tabbed multiple-site web browser from FlashPeak that uses the Microsoft Trident layout engine.[1] It incorporates a large collection of features like built-in popup killer, skinned window frame, form filler, site group, quick-search, auto login, hidden sites, built-in commands and scripting, online translation, script error suppression, blacklist/whitelist filtering, and URL Alias.

SlimBrowser was one of the twelve browser choices offered to European Economic Area users of Microsoft Windows in 2010.[2]

Since V6.0, SlimBrowser has adopted a multi-process architecture to improve stability and eliminate performance restrictions associated with traditional single process browsers. SlimBrowser included a full-featured form filler with support of multiple identities in V6.01.

FlashPeak has also released two SlimBrowser clone with different engines from Trident: Slimjet which uses Chromium and SlimBoat which used WebKit[3] but is no longer supported.
