From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Streamline \Stream"line`\, a.
     Of or pert. to a stream line; designating a motion or flow
     that is free from turbulence, like that of a particle in a
     streamline; hence, designating a surface, body, etc., that is
     designed so as to afford an unbroken flow of a fluid about
     it, esp. when the resistance to flow is the least possible;
     as, a streamline body for an automobile or airship; -- the
     current usuage prefers the term streamlined.
     [Webster 1913 Suppl.]

      adj 1: made efficient by stripping off nonessentials; "short
             streamlined meetings"; "a streamlined hiring process"
      2: designed or arranged to offer the least resistant to fluid
         flow; "a streamlined convertible" [syn: streamlined,
