Internet & Networking "Epiphany is the web browser for the GNOME desktop. Its goal is to be simple and easy to use. 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.

So Epiphany will be able to use Firefox extensions, is that what you're saying? Cos if so, that's good news. And if not, you're talking bollocks because extensions are one of the main reasons Firefox is so popular. Furthermore, I suspect that talk of "Gnome integration" is overrated. Opera isn't known for Gnome integration either, but no one complains about that. This isn't about worshipping at the cult of Gnome but about assessing the real merits of a web browser. My original point - that Epiphany is largely reinventing a wheel that doesn't need to be reinvented - is one of the curses of Linux.
