Available for Windows and Mac.
In a world of bleak new web browsers, here is something slightly different: a web browser that focuses on a full screen experience.
Initially launched back in 2004, Sleipnir appears to be quite popular among Japanese, or at least was, according to few reports it had 6% market share in 2006 and 9% in 2008.
In addition to that, it’s included in the browser ballot screen and even works with Windows 98.
Speaking of the web browser itself, Sleipnir 3 users can switch between IE’s and Firefox’s rendering engines, use mouse gestures, synchronize data, enjoy HTML5, etc. Features that are pretty much expected in today’s web browsers.
However, as we said, it focuses on a full screen experience and as you can see from the screenshot below, it’s pretty sweet.
By combining the address bar, navigation panel, mouse gestures and minimized thumbnails, Sleipnir 3 feels more like an app instead of a Windows or Mac OS application. Whether or not those features are enough to make you switch, it’s up to you.
And in case you are using Windows Phone, Android or iOS, there is a mobile version as well.
If you are curious enough to try Sleipnir, here is a link to full presentation and download links below.
