I have no idea what this is. It requests pages with some-but-not-all supporting files. Always from what appears to be a human ISP in Japan (with Accept-Language headers to match). The rapidly changing UA suggests some confusion about what, exactly, is supposed to be getting updated.

I was going to give them 8000 bonus points for the name, but it turns out I'd confused Sleipnir (Odin's horse) with Mj°lnir (Thor's hammer), so let's cut back to 3000. It's still got 8 legs and can run as fast on water as on land, so there is that.

The mythological name Sleipnir has been used by a Windows / Mac / iPhone / Android browser for years: sleipnir.pos.to/software/sleipnir/

I haven't been around in a while so I didnt see this.

I actually use Sleipnir, its an interesting browser. Japanese, ported to English. But I dont know why it would be pinging out to you like this.
