    "OK at best"

    February 2, 2014  |   By Presentasia

    Version: Sleipnir 4.3.2

    Pros

    - Tab grouping
    - Firefox-esque
    - Tab previews

    Cons

    - A tad slow
    - Clunky UI

    Summary

    This browser is just OK. It isn't fantastic nor is it terrible. It's more or less a slower, blue firefox with a more cluttered UI.

    "Cool Looking Web Browser"

    July 25, 2012  |   By SNAGGS20

    Version: Sleipnir 3.5.2

    Pros

    Colorful Web Browser easy to use and easy to log onto, Web Browser is stylish, modern and fast

    Cons

    None so far the only con is where is the home button. Overall a cool neat web browser that is easy to use. Better then Google Chrome and a great addition to Mozilla Firefox and IE 8 ( Internet Explorer 8 )
    A great Web Browser for older computers and it easier to use then Google Chrome.

    "Great look, great feel, and pleasing to use"

    February 23, 2012  |   By mitchjmh

    Version: Sleipnir 3.0.10

    Pros

    Great look and feel from this version (3.0.10). It reminds me of a very nice suped up IE 7/8 with a much better look and response (in other words IE 9 with an IE 7 toolbar setup but somehow a lot funner to surf with than IE ever was).

    Cons

    None that I notice after 2 days use.

    Summary

    I kind of liked the earlier version of Sleipnir but this newest version is perfect in my opinion. I was switching back and forth from browser to browser not finding one that I really loved using until I noticed this new version of Sleipnir. I highly recommend this browser if you are looking for something good to replace the overhyped popular ones.

    "feels and looks like IE"

    May 22, 2011  |   By mhs420

    Version: Sleipnir 2.9.7

    Pros

    Though it feels and looks like IE it has a few extra options Such as script and groupd added to the menu bar. Some of the norfmal menu Items have a few more than IE.

    Cons

    None I know of.....

    Summary

    Though I have not OFFICIALLY tested this browser, it too me is to much like IE. Give it a shot at least maybe you will like it and then maybe you wont. I scan all programs to makes they are not as cnet claims, infected. I do a little more than relying on just one product for security. Also use 3 different OS ( xp/vist/7 ) to see how well they work on those more popular OS by windows at the moment.

    Updated on May 22, 2011

    Updated : upon noticing I neglect to mention I test certain software, If there is a general question on a product for a product I am not affiliated in anyway with CNET or the products they supply. I will let you know if when they call something "free" that it really isn't and that its free trial or download that the program itself to use functions are only for paid or have to pay for full functions. Feel free to email me upon a product I have review: mhs99328@yahoo.com
    If there is a product simular you want tested before you download that I have reviewed, you can be assured that at thae time of reviewing there was no problem. Some of the outdated program versions no longer are accepted by Windows running vista or 7.Such of these programs are browsers or customizations. Some Xp base programs run without problem or having to use compatibility mode. I will let you know if you would like.
