Sleipnir Brings Sharing and Smart Tab Management to the Web Browser

Aug 2, 2012

Sleipnir is a web browser that’s focused on sharing and making web browsing easy to use. Gestures are available for performing actions, from swiping horizontally to switch tabs, and more advanced gestures for closing and restoring tabs. Tab browsing uses a two-dimensional tab bar, where different sets of bars can be called up and used at a time.

The app also tries to make it eas to share to various social services without leaving the app. Log in to various services like Twitter, Tumblr, and Instapaper and then by using the sharing options in the middle row of the pop up window that appears after tapping the sharing arrow in the lower left corner, articles can be shared directly from the browser.

There’s one reason why this app may be sticking around on my device: I can properly add images to posts in WordPress. Other Webkit browsers, even Chrome on Jelly Bean, has problems at times with something that should be so simple. Sleipnir is available for free from Google Play.
