Download Sleipnir 3, A Full Screen Web Browser

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.

    Do.

    NOT.

    Want.

    More and more the web is the web and apps are apps. Apps are about integration and the web is about browsing. If you want to make the web like apps, make it about integration too (like IE8 tried to do, and like IE9 kept on doing). Not about full screen that wastes space for other stuff and decreases functionality.

      “Sleipnir 3 users can switch between IE’s and Firefox’s rendering engines” so you can expect 100/100.

    After using it this is what I think.

    I thought I was installing firefox.  The installation is the same.

    I did not car for the bloated IE look.

    Once I switched to fullscreen, fenrir felt like IE 10 albeit a little less polished.

    They need to apply the fullscreen metaphor to their windowed mode.

    Can someone please test raven for mac.

    I have had my eye on it for sometime now. It looks like Opera

  • Max Renn

    No thanks. F11 is easier.

    It’s kind of creepy that Sleipnir 3 in Gecko-mode is detected as Firefox 3.6.24.
