|Operating system||Windows Vista, 7, 8 and OS X 10.6/10.7, iOS, Android, Windows Phone|
Sleipnir is a tabbed web browser developed by Fenrir Inc. The browser's main features are customization and tab functions. It supports HTML5 and the engine of Internet Explorer 9 (Trident). As of version 220.127.116.1100, support for the WebKit rendering engine was implemented and Gecko rendering engine support was terminated.
Sleipnir was originally developed by Yasuyuki Kashiwagi. In November 2004, the computer containing Sleipnir's source code was stolen. In 2005, Kashiwagi established Fenrir & Co. to start development of a new version of Sleipnir. Starting with version 2, the new versions are not compatible with the original.
The stable version, 5.0, was released on December 24, 2013.
The latest stable version is 5.1
Sleipnir was included in a browser ballot screen on the EU edition of Windows 7 (not in May 2011)[clarification needed] (and XP and Vista with an update), so EU users of Windows 7 may choose between Internet Explorer and other browsers during the installation process.
Version 5 was released in 2013.
In the Windows version, the browser's layout engine can be changed to either Internet Explorer's Trident or Mozilla's Gecko. Other features include tab grouping, mouse gestures, page zooming, a search bar, Greasemonkey-like user script support, and plugin support. WebKit rendering has been implemented, and as of May 17, 2012, is in alpha version stages.
Bookmarks on Sleipnir can be synced with different platform, using a function called Fenrir Pass.
