As the one who initially mentioned it on Bleeping Computer, I can honestly say it beats Chrome hands-down in most areas.....and for me, it's largely replaced Chrome. With one glaring exception; it won't run NetFlix. (*groan*)
It appears the SlimJet developers haven't coded in the necessary support for the HTML5 player that NetFlix uses; I did read about their reasons some weeks ago, but can't remember where I got the link from at the moment. If I rediscover it I'll post it here.
A bunch of us on the Puppy Forums were trying, a while back, to see which other browsers you could get NetFlix to work with. We found it would work with any version of Chromium from 49 onwards, since Chromium now has the Encrypted Media Extensions setting (under 'chrome://flags') set 'on' by default.....all you need to do is to 'borrow' the libwidevinecdm.so and libwidevinecdmadapter.so modules from a contemporary version of Chrome (just copy 'em over to the Chromium directory in Linux. In Windows, I'm afraid, this process doesn't work for some arcane reason!)
After that, you're away. SlimJet, although based on Chromium, has had a lot of extra stuff added, and some of the basic things removed, so.....you pays your money and makes your choice. I'd still recommend it to anyone who's not happy with Google's 'nosey' attitude.
Re; the Turbo downloader, and image shrinker for upload, I honestly haven't tried them yet.....but Mikeslr, one of the Puppy Forum's 'stalwarts', has; and he reckons the 'Turbo downloader' works exceptionally well. That's a recommendation from an ex-lawyer!
Don't bother too much with adblockers, personally (although I leave SlimJet's running anyway); I use Ghostery, and that blocks just about everything the web can chuck at me.....And as for passwords, I always disable the built-in password managers in every browser I run. I use LastPass, instead.....which is accessible from anywhere. (And I do change my 'master' password on a regular basis.)
EDIT:- Found the link.....it was on the Puppy Forums.
