A Chromium-based browser that blocks ads and tracking.
 
24.0.5.0 (See all)

FlashPeak Slimjet is a web browser based on Chromium, from which it inherits its most outstanding features. The idea behind this project is providing the users with a way to surf the net without being constantly disturbed by ads. Besides, it does not collect any of your private information and prevents third parties from tracking your activities.

The program’s interface makes it look like other Chromium-based browsers. It has a minimalistic design, and most of the space is devoted to visualizing the web pages. It is good that you can customize the toolbar to meet your exact needs. Yet, the similarities are not only external but also under the hood. In this respect, its Blink engine makes it extremely fast and stable. What is more, it does not waste the resources normally used by ads.

One of the best advantages of FlashPeak Slimjet is that it comes with multiple features that would otherwise require installing plugins. One of them is the excellent built-in download manager, capable of resuming jobs even after a closed session as well as speeding connections up to 12 times. In the case of YouTube videos, there is the possibility to download them in the desired resolution or even grab just their audio tracks. What is more, the browser can help you record any type of content, such as streaming video and dynamic elements.

All in all, FlashPeak Slimjet deserves your attention if you are looking for a modern browser combining speed and privacy protection with lots of other useful features. However, you will need to consider whether you want to synchronize your browsing data between devices or not. If your answer is yes, there are better options.
