Well, sorry about starting a flamewar, that wasn't the intention (though I
do realize this is easily flammable material). I was just questioning the
wisdom of making Epiphany as the default browser for Gnome (dunno what's
the default for KDE and don't care as that's not the default desktop).

Epiphany might be a nice little browser but it's still rather obscure and
little used application compared to Mozilla and Firebird. In this
IE-centric world there's enough pain involved already to get things like
company intranet web applications supported with just Mozilla. "When are
you going to start supporting Epiphany"... not in this lifetime.
