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.

Awesome browser. Very fresh and clever design, no need for nonsense extensions here.

This is contrary to the rules.They have no right to arbitrarily put something in your MenBar without permission from you the user.They deliberately overstep their bounds.I consider it an invasion of a user's privacy.

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.

After downloading version 4.3.1 i could easily control the menubar icon. Uncheck the iPhone checkboxes inside the preferences!

Not everyone has an iPhone and the Developer should not make this option in the preferences. It really shouldn't be there at all. That option and others could easily drive anyone away from using this browser,there are other options that have to be curbed to make this browser acceptable.

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.

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!!!

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.

Main 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
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.

In order to use Smartphone App Linker, it is required to download the free app Sleipnir Linker that can be used on iPhone / iPad and Android, and a Fenrir pass ID that can be obtained for free.
