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.

You could have easily figured out the shortcut by quickly looking at the menu. There is no need to support half a dozen legacy shortcuts.

*This* is what's wrong with GNOME. Obviously there *IS* a need to support these legacy shortcuts--you just replied to the user who uses them. *He* has a need for them so there *is* a need to support them.

I know you'll disagree, but you wont like the "make it configurable" choice either, I'm guessing. So where does this leave the original poster? Not using the software that doesn't work for him.

I think I looked through the menus. I even tried pressing every F-key and some combinations I thought might work. (Never cared enough to access the manual.)

I don't care if Alt+D or F6 is considered legacy, they are much more intelligent than some random Ctrl+L, which supposedly isn't "legacy" then.

I can do Alt+D without moving my (left) hand a bit. I can do F6 with just one finger. Ctrl+L is something I need to move my hand off the mouse for. Plus the fact I've never before heard of that particular shortcut.

It's in the File menu as Open Location. Ctrl L should be quite logical for "Location", but I can understand that you would like to have a shortcut that can be used with the left hand alone (personally I don't really see the point, as I have both hands on the keys anyway when I want to type a location, and I find this more convenient than holding the Alt key).
