Sleipnir Mobile is a web browser for Android OS with interesting features
[UPDATED]Now you can use each of the web services without having to log in whichever platform you're running it: Windows, Android or iOS. In addition, you can send viewed pages to Evernote, registering to Read Later services, posting simultaneously to Facebook, G+, Twitter, Tumblr... You can also save images to Dropbox and other cloud-storage services.
Sleipnir Mobile is a browser that came to be a real alternative to other settled browser. It's offering some reliable features that really make the difference. First off, it's focused on multi-tasking. For this reason, it allows you to operate multiple pages quickly and easily. How? 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. Likewise, in that bottom bar there's a search button that by default searches on Google.
Gestures is the other great feature of this browser: touch paging 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 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 users 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 to it because of gestures, functional tabs and multi-pages view.

Bing crashes the browser.
Why i cannot change default search engine? You can make paid version instead of using Bing.
Will switch back to five stars once search bar is switched back to Google or option to choose is added.
5* app but 1* for bing
I used Sleipnir on all my devices, PC included, until the default search engine was recently changed from Google to Bing. Now Sleipnir is terrible because Bing is worse than useless! There is no way for users to change the search engine back to Google (or to anything besides Bing). Developers pay attention & please fix this! Almost all the new reviews make this same complaint! Google phone users
Is there any way to add or change to another engine?
