As far as i know: it is. And that is a Good Thing. Why?

Simply because Epiphany is simple, fast, tightly integrated with gnome,
and really easy to use. When you click a link for a pdf document in
epiphany, it is opened rigth as you expect.

And user base: Epiphany is based on mozilla. So really, the engine is
the secound biggest.

For those who believe that it should be gnome/kde neutral: No, it must
not. Of cource, ideally, kde should be able to have its own default
browser. But when you *choose* to go for KDE instead of GNOME, it can be
safely assumed that you are competent enough to find yourself another
browser.
