On our school system, we offer both firefox and epiphany (with epiphany
being the default).  In Sabayon (Gnome's user profile editor), Firefox
integration leaves much to be desired.  Any attempts to set bookmarks
don't get properly saved and you are also unable to save whether or not
certain toolbars are shown (does anyone actually *use* the Bookmarks
toolbar).  Firefox also takes a relatively long time to start and it's
awkward to use when students are logged into more than one computer at a

On the flip side, Epiphany is missing the search window and all Firefox
extensions, which means that I really prefer Firefox for my use.  If
Epiphany would include the search window, that would probably be enough
