In benchmarking tests against the latest versions of Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera, Sleipnir never ranked higher than the middle of the pack, and often wound up at the bottom. While testing its vector graphics capabilities, Sleipnir choked hard, obliging me to force quit.
Benchmarks: Sleipnir 4
I like the boldness of Sleipnir's thinking, and I hope that in future versions, the quality of its engineering catches up with its architecture. If you're looking for something different, and you don't need the fastest browser on the block, this dark-horse contender's definitely worth a try.
