Sleipnir 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

MacUpdate's link to "Developer website" goes here: https://www.fenrir-inc.com/jp/sleipnir/ — It's all in Japanese, so I cannot get any background information.

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.

Watch Out!!! It sneaks in a Preference to make it your default browser in the first installer page. This is wrong!

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.
