Epiphany ties together many GNOME components in order to let you focus on the Web content, instead of the browser application." This article starts out with a little history about the Epiphany browser and goes on to talk about the advantages of this light-weight browser.

On normal desktops, if you have Firefox there seems little point in bothering with Epiphany.

Firefox's Gnome integration is poor, and Mozilla doesn't really care. It's 2008 and while "Use image as background" has been there for ages... it hasn't actually worked for ages. And even on machines with reasonable memory, FF3 is a relative memory hog in comparison. The upcoming Epiphany 2.26 with webkit is lighter still. And *very* noticeably faster than FF3. In six months, there will be no reason to bother with FF under Gnome anymore.
