Companies mentioned in this article: FlashPeak Inc.

AUSTIN, Texas, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- FlashPeak Inc. introduces to global Internet surfers Slimjet, a fast, smart and feature-packed web browser powered by the Blink engine, the same engine used by Google Chrome. Whether it's doing serious research work, streaming Internet video, or playing online games, Slimjet helps users do it more efficiently and smoothly. Slimjet integrates many convenient and powerful features internally so that users can do more in less time without taking the pain to look for external plugins. While Chrome is known for its simplicity and minimalist design style, Slimjet takes a different approach by incorporating more options and settings so that every user can customize it to suit personal preference and maximize personal productivity. Slimjet is more much flexible and customizable than Chrome while keeping the user interface clean and uncluttered.

Slimjet features a fully customizable toolbar which allows users to add more buttons to gain quick access to various features such as history viewer, printing, downloads, clearing browsing data, Facebook integration, web page translation and even weather forecasting. For example, the Facebook button allows users to share their online activities among their friends on Facebook with a single click. The web page translation allows users to translate any page or a selected piece of text between any two specified languages. The weather button can even show your local weather condition right on the toolbar so that users stay informed of the weather outside all the time without visiting any website. The toolbar can be placed on either the left or right side of the Omnibox depending on the user's preference.

Slimjet integrates a full-featured form filler called QuickFill which replaces the primitive password manager available in Chrome. Instead of just saving and filling in your login information, QuickFill lets users save the web page link and the login information together as a form file. Users can simply select the form file like a bookmark and Slimjet will open the web page, fill in the saved login information and submit the login form automatically, without any further intervention after the initial click. With QuickFill, users can log into their favorite online accounts in the most efficient way, without relying on third-party form filler plugins such as Roboform and LastPass.

Slimjet automatically compresses photos being uploaded to a reasonable resolution for online sharing purpose so that the speed to upload photos can be increased by up to 20 times. The photo compression is performed dynamically on the fly and doesn't affect the original photos. The whole process is transparent to the users. Slimjet also includes a Photo Salon feature which allow users to add frame images and other enhancement effects to photos being uploaded so that users can make their photos appear more impressive among their friends. It works seamlessly with any photo sharing websites, such as Facebook, Google+, Flickr and so on.

A lot of additional options and settings have been added in Slimjet to increase its usability and customizability. For example, a dedicated section of options has been added in the settings page to give users more control in terms of the tab behaviors, such as automatic tab activation and automatic tab creation. In the New Tab page, users are given the options to change the number of rows and columns of quick-dial buttons, change the background image or quickly switch the engine to use in the search box. In the network settings, users can define a list of proxies and quickly switch between them. In addition to that, Slimjet is made compatible with all plugins and extensions designed for Chrome. Therefore, users can also extend Slimjet with their favorite plugins and apps, such as the popular Adblock Plus extension, just like they do in Chrome.

Slimjet is released under freeware license at no cost to end users. It runs on any Windows platform no earlier than Windows XP. For more information about Slimjet, please visit http://www.slimjet.com.
