Sleipnir 3 for Windows (3.8.1) released!category : for Windows, Sleipnir 4
Today, Sleipnir 3 for Windows (3.8.1) was released featuring improved speed of actions with WebKit and overall operability.
In today’s release, we have focused hard on adding improvements provided from the community and support areas. The speed of actions and ease of use has evolved a step, so if you haven’t tried out Sleipnir 3 for Windows yet or are using an older version, please give this one a go. (Sleipnir 3 is installed in a separate folder to Sleipnir 2 so that you can use both)
Speed of actions after using WebKit for a long time improved.
We have already received a lot of praise from users of WebKit in Sleipnir 3 for Windows such as “Sleipnir 3 moves better than ever” and “Sleipnir has been reborn”….but we are always looking to make improvements so we have made adjustments so the same ease of use can be experienced over long periods of time.
Switch for phone number links for Fenrir Pass added to Customize | Fenrir Pass
The function that adds phone number links when using Fenrir Pass Connect can be extremely useful but it also puts a burden on the rendering engine. From this release, you can turn off the phone number links being added to experience improved speed of actions. Please understand that in the upcoming updates it is possible that this function will be set to be turned off by default.
Displaying of tabs opened from the bookmarks bar being slow fixed
After discussions and testing to understand the situation brought forward by some users we have successfully fixed this issue.
Thank you everybody for helping us with this.
And the SuperDrag Extension has become even more enjoyable to use
A function called Drag And Spin has been added to the SuperDrag Extension. By rotating the mouse wheel button while dragging and holding down Shift, Ctrl or Alt, it is possible to perform actions using virtually just your mouse. “Wheel click while holding down left mouse button” already exists in Sleipnir mouse alias so users of this function should not feel any awkwardness. (There may be occasions when this function can not be used depending on the mouse type and when using devices other than a mouse)
We have also made other SuperDrag Extension adjustments in addition to Drag And Spin.
Please check out the release notes for further information.
