The second arc of our history

by Miki

Have you read our history and secret?

We will mark the 3rd anniversary of the founding of Fenrir Inc on November 16th. Our history is on "History page" above but here I'd like to talk more details about how and why our company philosophy was created.

As history shows that his PCs for software development were stolen three years ago and he lost all the source codes of Sleipnir. So he had no choice but to give up Sleipnir. After the accident, he was so shocked that he could not get out of his bed for a week.

He had already huge number of users in Japan at that time. And when he reported this accident, it became big news and he received lots of encouraging messages from users. Also some users even started contacting with each other and they tried to support him.

He re-realized that he was supported by many users and decided to re-create Sleipnir from the beginning. This accident deepened more communication with users.

"Provide happiness for users through software," "creating software for users" now became company philosophy of Fenrir Inc.

We have started advancing into the global market since this year. We would like to communicate actively with users as same as Japan around the world and create and offer continuously more enhanced browser for users.

We have received lots of supports and warm messages since we created Sleipnir. We keep making our best efforts to offer high custamizable, highly quality, and elegant designed browser for YOU!!

Thank you very much for using Sleipnir and your kind support!

Let's use and enjoy IEPanelEx / IEDockEx (3) – IEPanelEx part 2

by Mr.X

It's getting cooler and cooler. It's a good season to eat hot hot ramen! Ummmm...

Hi, guys! I'm Mr. X! Give me ramen!

Outline of the previous blogs

・Tried IEPanel
・Set IEPanelEx

Today's topic is “how to create something more with simple HTML and JavaScript.”
I continue form the previous blog. Before starting this, please read the previous blog and create “TestPanel.”

*IEPanelEx / IEDockEx are softwares under development in our Laboratory!

Before you start...

1.Open “<Sleipnir installfolder>/plugins/IEPanelEx/TestPanel/config.ini” in text editor
2.Delete the line, “URL=”
3.Copy index.html to somewhere for your back up (you can find it in the same folder where config.ini is in)
4.Restart Sleipnir

TestPanel will be displayed like this

Let's create original panel!
Are you ready? OK, then, let's edit index.html. After opening it in the text editor and delete all the lines, write as follows and save it.

Right click on the panel and select “Refresh”


You can display your favorite contents just editing index.html. You can use JavaScript too.

Let's create a count down timer!
      var TIMER = 5;
      var COUNT = TIMER;
      var TH;
      function startTimer() {
        if (COUNT <= 0)
          COUNT = TIMER;
        TH = setInterval(function() {
          COUNT -= 1;
          if (COUNT <= 0) {
        }, 1000);
    <input type="button" value="Click" onclick="startTimer();">

It keeps counting down though you close the panel. I always set “var TIMER = 180” to time for instant noodle. So I can enjoy surfing the Internet without forgetting the best time for noodle!! Ready to eat Ramen!!

Next blog...

When you use this as a timer, you can add more, such as STOP button or a function to show time of counting down etc... what...? I cannot hear you...

“Taking too much space :-(”

......Yeah. I know... Whole panel is displayed for just one button. Yes, you are right! Taking too much space...
So the next time, I'll introduce IEDockEx that doesn't take that much space.

Thank you!

When you use Javascript with IEPanelEx, you may receive a warning message “To help protect your security, your web browser has restricted to access.” because of “Security setting of execution of Active X.” If you try to display a reliable page, you can allow its dieplay selecting “Allow Blocked Content” from the click menu.

Please select “Yes” on the next warnig window saying “Are you sure you want to let this file run active content?”
