Sleipnir is a tabbed web browser...

:?: Any opinion about it?

Quote:
Easy-to-use RSS reader is built in. It will inform you when a new RSS is found.
Sleipnir works in tandem with cellular phone full browser "Jig browser". You can have "Favorites" which can be used not only at home but also at outside your home.
Customizability which exceeds that of Sleipnir 1.66 based on XML configuration files.
The browser engine is also interchangeable. (Trident(Internet Explorer)/Gecko)
Most of the plugins are written without using MFC. Sleipnir is fast software. It operates even on a low spec machine.
Mouse gesture feature is installed. Simple movement of a mouse with the left or the right button performs "Backward" or "Forward" in browser history.
IE's favorites and Sleipnir's original bookmarks can be switched by editing a style file.
Fully accommodated with Unicode. Various languages can be displayed correctly.
OLE Drag & Drop is supported. Most actions are performed by mouse movements.
"Quick Security" enables easy modification of security settings. You can keep a secure state even on the Trident(Internet Explorer) engine.
Unnecessary functions can be removed, because of the plugin-based extensions.
Convenient search bar is equipped for more efficient searchings.

Yes, I use both standard and portable Sleipnir all the time. There are more features to Sleipnir than I could ever use. Because pretty much all public PC's use the IE engine this is a safer way to surf the net. It doesn't beat Firefox as security goes I guess, but I like the feel and the look of Sleipnir.

Disappointed. Just tried the "portable" archive 2.96 version and found it writes to a subfolder of All Users/Application Data :( Also, I can't find the Gecko Plugin. On the main page for plugins http://www.fenrir-inc.com/global/sleipnir/plugins/ it says that the Gecko plugin is

Sleipnir 3.04 is available, it can still be downloaded in a zip file.
I couldn't see any mention of Gecko, so I suppose it is Trident only, i.e. IE based...
I have not tested whether v3.x still writes to user profile or AppData.

I've just tested version 3.0.4 and I have to say that I like it, especially the way it handles scrolling, even on heavy loaded flash pages.
It does write one file outside its folder, but I'm not sure it's needed for portable usage (however, it makes it not stealth): "\Documents\Fenrir Inc\Sleipnir\UserProfiles.ini"
I also like the way you can hold/drag RMB to navigate through the opened tabs.

But I don't think I can adapt to another browser (like Maxthon, this has a learning curve) ... I'm too Opera dependent! :)

I tested the mobile browser on Android -- very fast, innovative and slick. I look forward to seeing what this Yasuyuki Kashiwagi guy puts together next.

> I suppose it is Trident only, i.e. IE based...

v2 is based on IE 9 according to the home page but Wikipedia says it can be switched between Trident and Gecko (Mozilla).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleipnir_%28web_browser%29

v.3 is in some kind of late beta and I'm not 100% about what engine its using.

sleipnir seems quite interesting. i'm gonna try it out for sure :)
i like the ie10 look they adopted for sleipnir 3. and yes, it is also using trident engine, like sleipnir 2.
they have plans to support gecko too, by the time they reach 3.2 version [according to their roadmap]

very nice find! :)

New version out http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-S ... pnir.shtml
Changelog http://www.softpedia.com/progChangelog/ ... 80585.html

I'm not sure if this is the ZIP version that's listed on the home page (http://www.fenrir-inc.com/services/down ... ipnir3.zip) or what.

About the Stealth status: there are, indeed, a number of bits left behind, but I cannot identify anything important among those; anyone else?

@Moderator: could you remove the version number from the topic title, please!?

What was left behind exactly? Just about to test this.

Edit: Tried to test but the interface was Japanese. So I gave up.

When you restart the browser, the interface is in the English language :wink:
