"Firefox is a great browser. However, it's a tad on the bloated side (even though the new version are definitely better!). Also, Firefox is focused on cross-platform compatibility.

"So is Epiphany right for you? Well, maybe. You should probably be using Ubuntu, not Kubuntu, Xubuntu (or the other derivatives).
