Comparison between Blink engine and WebKit engine 2: Appearance

There are no changes in appearance compared with the WebKit engine version used until now, so please feel assured that users of Sleipnir can keep browsing like usual.

Comparison between Blink engine and WebKit engine 2: Speed

Just like previously we made a comparison using the  Octane JavaScript Benchmark.
※Due to using a different computer compared with previously, the measurements have become lower overall.

Through the measurements obtained from our team, we can tell that there is a 9% speed increase. Please try out this new boost in speed.

Please try out the new version of Sleipnir 4 that is now 1 step faster that the previous WebKit engine version.

Sleipnir 4 actually supports both the Blink and Trident engines, and of course you can still use your Chrome extensions just like in the WebKit version.
