Sleipnir is designed to be a highly customizable browser that you can configure to suit your individual needs. With Sleipnir, you can create your ideal browser by changing the design, skin, and visual appearance. You can also add custom functionality to Sleipnir with a wide range of plugins and user scripts. Users love Seipnir for it's unique blend of high-performance and customizability!

I wonder why they chose to release a new browser that seems to offer exactly the same functionality as Firefox does, into a market they're hardly likely to make a dent in?

It also seems to use the IE rendering engine, so presumably it's just a wrapper around IE, and will thus suffer from the same security issues as IE does?

RE: New browser

(OP)
it offers two engines one for IE and one for FF.

it also offers Grep built in.

do not like the RoboForm option though.

RE: New browser

(OP)
kicked the tires on this and decided to uninstall it.

nothing really new just differnet look to the same things.

one thing that hit me is that with both engines, then it would be susceptable to attacks targeting IE and/or FF;  not a good thing to be running.
