13 June 2020

Gesture-focused Web browser.

Overview

Sleipnir lets you freely browse the Web with a rich selection of functions, but without having to think about unnecessary things. With Sleipnir, you can experience Web browsing in an extremely simple design, with powerful operations that can be easily performed with just one hand.

Features
  • Extremely speedy gestures - You can operate tabs at high speed as if magic by using the multi-touch and mouse-supported gesture - [TouchPaging]. You do not need to do all your daily browsing by clicking the small buttons on the screen. Now you can perform operations such as switching, going to previous, and closing tabs with the gestures of one hand.
  • Smartphone App Linker - All phone numbers are clickable when using Sleipnir. By simply clicking that phone number, it is sent to your smartphone, and you can start calling straight away.
  • Web App Linker - Share: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Flickr Save: Dropbox, Evernote, SkyDrive, SugarSync Read later: Readability, Instapaper, Pocket
Additional Functions
  • Switch tabs by swiping tabs left or right, or by right-clicking and moving the mouse
  • Operate tabs using a variety of gestures: Execute using touch operations or while holding down the right-click button
  • TiledTab: Pinch-in on the trackpad to view a list of tabs
  • Hold And Go: Hold down on a link to open in the background
  • Ad block
  • Tab groups for managing tabs
  • Sync bookmarks with other devices using Fenrir Pass
  • The standard full-screen with OS X 10.7 Lion

I like this Browser, too. Its fast, very fast and small app (chrome + FF are bigger than 160 MB, sleipnir is 41mb only). But we have an issue in Sleipnir after login in a browser-flash-game, i.e. upologus.de. Flash version is 31.0.0.108, version before is running very well

Simple fast browser, without all that extra features, working great. I think it's a worthy alternative to Google Chrome if you don't like it for some reason.

Anyone who walks up to my computer with Sleipnir working, gets work done! It's kinda true! when casual web browsing, you wont need multitude extensions to achieve what you need to do. I've used it for a year now, and find the gestures so comfortable, i find myself trying to get other browsers to behave the same! Their mobile browsers work pretty well, no brilliantly, but the most recent update purports to have addressed those issues. Give sleipnir a try, and forget the idea that some other extension will make a browser more 'complete'.

Feature rich, but not one of the fastest, and, unfortunately, one of the most intrusive browsers I’ve seen to date. Switches to default browser without asking for permission to do so, as well as installing a menu extra. Has problems to process download links from file hosting sites, which Safari and Chrome do handle well.

Avoid installing this browser because it takes priviages that you will not generally allow.

This release puts a menu in your menubar whether you like it or not. It pertains to your iPhone. I don't have an iPhone and I don't want it in my menubar. You can not remove it by Command clicking it. I then trashed the entire app using app cleaner but I couldn't get rid of the menu bar item even though I got rid of the preferences and app support as well as the saved state using app cleaner.I got rid of it by using Activity Monitor by entering the app's name and choosing Force QUIT on the "helper". The idea of putting the "helper in is wrong and is contrary to OS rules. Who knows what else it does? I am taking this off all my Macs.

So given the never ending, very large effort that goes into maintaining and advancing a browser, I just don't see a new browser that is most likely championed by one person surviving the test of time. Without actually knowing the programming implications of what I'm asking, is there any way to wrap up your gesture environment and other things that make Sleipnir unique into one or more extensions for an existing browser instead?

It's ok. Seems fast. Please, please, get rid of the awful Apple linen texture when you view tab sets. I hate it on all Apple software and I hate it here. It looks like a 1997 web page background. Really needs support for some extensions or add-ons. Without those, this browser will never become popular. 1Password, Firebug (or some developer tool), etc.

Beautiful design, clever ideas. Lack of extensibility is serious these days. Sleipnir never closes without freezing, though. Hope the Sleipnir design team can sort this out.

if you are trying to convince people that you are a professional operation, you might want to clean up the typos on your opening page. I tried to leave a note about this on your site, but there is no contact link and your forum link kept rejecting my entries.

I am trying out Sleipnir on and off for the past 2 weeks; I find it seems to eat up a lot of RAM even with a couple windows open. I used it to blog and every time I pressed the "delete" key, I would leave my draft and go to the previous page, which was quite annoying. It's a cool browser, and I think a lot of the features are really oriented to what the future of browsing will be, but maybe it's a little too soon to launch it as is, or maybe some default preferences should be switched to what people are used to the most… I'll be looking forward to see how it evolves, since the iPhone version is really good, but for now, Safari will remain my desktop browser of choice.

Anyone knows how I can keep Sleipnir from reopening previously opened tabs at launch? I just want it to forget the opened tabs when I quit so I can have a fresh start at launch. I've searched in all the prefs and options, but nothing... thanks!!!

This version works perfectly in 10.8.2. I put it through a vigorous workout and it did everything the way it is supposed to work. The guide is helpful and I really appreciate the various tips! 5 Stars for sure!

It was Version 3.8.5 that didn't load, the updated version of 3.8.5.1 does load but nothing happens, it just freezes. Not very much of the browser works at all including most of Javascript. This was an enjoyable browser but is now looking a waste of time. Will start to look elsewhere, far too unreliable.

- Tab Switch redesigned: Instantly switch to recently viewed tabs using Command-` That overrides the canonical default OS X window cycling shortcut so it's probably preferable to use more typical/familiar app tab cycling shortcuts (e.g. Command-{ / Command-}, Control-Shift-Tab / Control-Tab) instead.

There are some things to like:I love the motion to switch between tabs and it loads the page and the app from the dock quickly, but the adblock is terrible. It seems like for every web page it opens it opens two ads and two pages that i didn't want.Until that is fixed, it is unusable

This broswer is wonderful, and I am giving you a review based on use; it uses Safari's web kit, so deletion of cookies, history are the same as Safari; setting it as your default browser, means going to Safari and setting it there; it uses the keychain; after you type your username and password; you will be asked if you wish to save the password. The HTML5 test came in at 319+12 out of 500. This browsr also has a subtle download manager and URL; which you simply bring up by going to File and Open location; This is a "rock solid stable" browser, and using it under conservative usage reveal no "slowdowns; I do not use the "gestures feature" or the Sync feature; this is a web browser for browsing the web. Using Safari cookie cutter will delete the cookies in Sleipnir, also in preferences going to advanced and detete the cookies. Since I have used both the App Store blue and the Black version, I cannot find a preference in either version. I have used both side by side; no diffrence. Lastly it has a full list of user agents fot tough sites! I would appreciate an upfront reviewer saying I "prefer not to use this browser;give me peace please, and simply state that it does not meet your needs!

This is a great browser. What I like so far: * labels and ribboned bookmarks ( adjusts to put most used bookmarks at the top) * ability to quickly post to facebook, twitter, linkedin and more * ability to quickly save to evernote, readability, pocket (readitlater) and instapaper * dropbox /cloud capabilities * saves opened tabs/pages when exiting out of window * recommended (topsites) pages - watches sites most used over a period of a few days What I'd like to see added: * chrome extensions although I don't use very many of these) * address bar (right now it's hidden away) * ability to fill in forms Overall it's a great browser that I enjoy using.

I like Visual Tabs - I use Roccat and am used to it, so if I was to switch browsers it deffo needs that feature. However Slepnir isn't doing it for me, gestures are too easily accidentally activated (unless it's just me?), it's annoying having the address bar hidden away. Performance seems sluggish compared to Roccat in terms of rendering web pages, the application as a whole runs slower than Roccat (however it's startup time is quicker than Roccat). I also compared it to Chrome and Safari and it seems to be slower then those too. Titled tabs is cool (although I haven't found much of a use for it yet). But overall i'm still not digging it, but it has so much potential! The plus side is like Roccat it has an activate development so if you keep working on it you might win me over. The browser does look nice and does have a wide range of features, but it is still missing various basic features, it's only just recently got a private browsing mode. At it's current state I can't give more than 3 and a half stars.

Sleipnir is more suitable for windows than Mac. But you still down well. Now I will keep using Firefox. Maybe I will choose this one after you add more feature to it.

I really like this browser because of the amount of attention they pay to the trackpad. I did switch the settings so I could go from one tab to the next going the opposite of what they thought, and that brings up a problem for when I try to reload a page. But this version is much better than the last, which had crashing happen very often. I like the way the bookmarks are kept, too. Try it out.

Well, I like the skin of this browser, with all those visual tabs etc. But the rest is just too slow. I "thinks" a lot when you switch between tabs. You have to wait to get close tab button when you hover over a tab you want to close. There is some adblocking built-in, but it doesn't look like it works. And finally - you can't integrate Spleipnir with 1password, which just makes all effort fo having "fancy browser with gestures" pointless (at least too me). Want more fanciness in your life? Get Firefox, choose some modern looking theme and install one of many gesture plugins... I stay with my speedy and reliable Safari. The thing to browse the Internet my OS authors gave me.

This is an overall great browser. I would have given it 5 stars if it was not for some stability issues, mainly from the way it utilizes the flash plug-in.

Sleipnir definitely has potential but oddly enough all of your Chrome extensions work in the Windows version but not the Mac. That really sucks. If all of Chrome's extensions worked in the Mac version this would be my default browser.

This is a very interesting alternative browser. Try it out. But I do have a serious problem with it. The only gesture that is working for me is moving between tabs - that's great, but the other gestures are not working at all. I try to re-load a page using the clockwise circular gesture and nothing happens.

I like the way your going about it, it still needs a lot of work as somethings aren't quite as obvious or logical at least to me. to activate the address bar you don't click the address name but the domain name to the right which could do with being more... forward rather than blending into the background. kb shortcut for a search is very obscure even the menu item is hidden away in the edit menu so much so I had to find it with the help search. it really should be cmd k ala firefox and menu item in the file menu ala safari. some further explanation of your gesture system would be greatly appreciated as it's not very clear, I haven't found a way to navigate tabs yet but I have figured out you two finger drawer things found in the preferences I'd like an expandable web search box that grows when its in focus just like the address bar. I could go on forever easily so I'll leave it at this for now
