The Japanese company Fenrir Inc. has released a new web browser for iPhone. Sleipnir Mobile is a new challenger to Apple’s Safari, which main focus is on “power users”, who use their iPhone for more serious web surfing. It is a “web browser for iPhone that enables you to browse smoothly and efficiently with functional tabs.”

The tabs are placed at the bottom of the browser and contains small previews of your open pages, quite similar to Cover Flow on iTunes. To switch between the pages, you use simple gestures, and links will open in new tabs by simply pressing a bit longer when you click.

Wikipedia: The names Sleipnir and Fenrir are both from Norse mythology where Sleipnir is the eight-legged horse of Odin and Fenrir is a monstrous wolf.

Sleipnir Mobile is free and can be downloaded via iTunes.
