"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. That's great, but sometimes that also means that Firefox won't be able to take advantage of Gnome-specific features, including the unified look, better language support, and HIG-compliant settings. If you've been feeling these Firefox blues as well, Epiphany could be the answer.


"So is Epiphany right for you? Well, maybe. You should probably be using Ubuntu, not Kubuntu, Xubuntu (or the other derivatives). You should also probably prefer ease-of-use and simplicity over power (not that Epiphany doesn't have power). And you also have to accept that Epiphany won't have as many add-ons as Firefox, although there are a lot. If you're OK with all of the above, Epiphany is a great option."
