I tried this on a Windows 8.1 system and it didn't work properly.
What do you mean "properly"? What happened?

Hi abruptum,

Wait until the browser is more stable and will have some extensions I cannot do without,

Chrome extensions support would be nice since it is Chromium/Blink based browser,
something similar to Sleipnir browser.

Hi abruptum,

I just trying out Sleipnir with my Google Chrome extensions, plays like a charm.
Just have to get accustomed to the canvas look,

Not bad and seems faster than Chrome.

Accepts extension directly from the Chrome Store:

Nice idea when you have a bunch of tabs open - whilst I can have the active tab highlighted, if you happen to hover over another tab it too gets highlighted. I have deleted this secondary tab on numerous occasions - fortunately a middle click on the tab bar restores the last closed tab.
