Sleipnir Mobile is a browser that came to become a real alternative to other settled browser. It's offering some reliable features that make the difference. First off, it's really focus on multi-tasking. For this reason, it allows you to operate multiple pages quickly and easily. Why? Thanks to a bottom bar in which you can see thumbnails of open pages. Just tap on the thumbnail to switch from one to another. What's more, in this bottom bar there's a search button that by default searches on Google.
Gestures is the other great feature of this browser: touchpaging lets you switch tabs just by flicking side to side. You can also close tabs "gesturing" a "L", restore currently close tabs with an "U", display search bar with an "S", and many more.
First time you launch Sleipnir it asks you to sync bookmarks. You can do it whenever you want though and manage them with default folder or FenrirFS. There's a handy grid homescreen from where you can access all that sites.
You can also check out download history.
From settings you can clear cache and history, enable/disable zoom button, scroll grip, enable hold&go, plugins and display modes. We're missing User Agent, bottom bar in horizontal view and other features. However, and above all, what we are missing is more fluency: it doesn't run as smooth as we expected. We encourage its developers, Fenrir Inc., to fix this issue, since it affects directly the usability of the browser.
Besides these catches, it's worth to give a go because of gestures, functional tabs and multi-pages view.
