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.

Why does Epiphany-WebKit need to be delayed until 2.26? WebKit is ready (see Chrome), it is ready on Linux too (Konqueror, etc). I'd very much love to see it in 2.24... Especially because Mozilla and Firefox development is dying as a result of Google entering the browser wars (and hiring away talent, etc).

Webkit is ready, but the interface integration is not. Cookies and password management are a work in progress. Adblock is not working yet. Proxies are not working yet. And details like "copy link location". It looks like a reasonable amount to get nailed down in 6 months though. I believe that a lot of the work is a result of getting gecko's tendrils out of the existing code.

I'm as anxious as you are. And I'm sure the devs are even more so.
