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.

What botters me about Epiphany is that it doesn't save the url history in the address bar.

Yes it does, and has for as long as I've been using it, which is quite a while.

Well yeah, but you have to type something to get text completition, I you only want to use your mouse then you can't.

Click the "Open History" button. If you don't like the placement you can move it down next to the address bar where FF puts theirs.

On a related subject, Epiphany's bookmarks handling is vastly superior to FF's.

My personal gripe is that I can't doubleclick on the tab bar to open a new tab.

Are there any gestures? If so, and if the first was fixed I'd be happy to use this over firefox, particularly with webkit.

Since FF 3 I'm not using Epiphany anymore (one of the reasons is tab handling). While I was, I've written a plugin to enable opening a tab with a double click. The links (Sorry, both in Hebrew) are here:

http://whatsup.org.il/article/5703

You might want to use google translate for those (they've added Hebrew translation).

Direct download:

Note one annoying bug:
Double clicks not just empty space on the tab bar (e.g: already open tabs, scroll buttons etc) opens a new tab.
