thumbapps.org Sleipnir Portable, Advanced Web browser for Windows!
"...Sleipnir has a radically different UI to any other browser you’ve likely ever used. ... One of the main selling points of Sleipnir is that it handles fonts extremely well... with the demise of Safari for Windows, Sleipnir marks the first re-entry into bringing OS X style fonts to a Windows web browser." —Paul Ferson, MakeTechEasier.com (26th Jul 2014)
Sleipnir (mythical eight-legged horse) is a proprietary web browser developed by Fenrir Inc., and is completely free to users.
