Sleipnir riding on Nipponese soil

Dear Reader,

3 posts on one day is too much, but I couldn’t help after reading this news. The Japanese company Fenrir [sic] has released a new version of their web browser Sleipnir [2x sic] 2.7, a browser they hope to challenge Firefox with. Sleipnir is based on the Trident core also used by Internet Explorer, but it allows the user to change the core to Gekko (used by Firefox) on the fly. This should help in giving a better user experience.

I have no previous experience with this browser, but I guess I’ll have to spend some time with it, if for nothing else, the name of it (and the company) are just not possible to bypass.
