The type and font are a little weird. It will take some time to figure out where everything is.
The ability to customize the GUI would be great!

Hi Para-Noid & bob3160,

Like the way the bookmarks are organized within  several pages organized like tabs.
Read here: http://www.maketecheasier.com/sleipnir-6-browser/
This browser has a bit different way of doing things, but importing settings and bookmarks from Google Chrome or firefox is just "woosh" and you are done.
Also this browser is very fast. I can imagine now why it is the browser of choice in Japan: "Nihon iti!".
When you have found the way it does things it is very refreshing and has a good feel, just take some time to get accustomed to it.
And folks very important "Avast Online Security" added to Sleipnir.
This cannot be a bad day....  ;D - thanks abruptum for pointing this out to us.  ;)

                               More Information
(I needed to allow this past Avast) - Avast needs to check it's detection and make the required changes.

Hi bob3160,

How about this free decrapifier program: http://www.decrap.org/
Seems OK here: https://www.metascan-online.com/en/scanresult/file/0d68b7f717ae4e7a8ce1e3b193e53495

Is there anything wrong with Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner, Polonus?
SOC Analyst, Digital Forensics & Incident Response (no cert), SIEM Design and Management, HTB Competitor & Pentesting (no cert). I occasionally write custom applications for threat detection...

Personal security is a mindset, not an application. Think before clicking.

Thank You Avast for doing such a good job!
I just ran this out of curiosity:

Thanks to Avast, the results are exactly what I expected. :)
