In the GNOME philosophy, we want applications that do their job, only their job, and we want those to do it perfectly. Epiphany's job is to browse the web. Only browsing the web. But browsing the web in a GNOME fashioned way.
Epiphany just follows your GNOME preferences. No need to handle themes, icons, behavior. It's not just integrated into the desktop, it is fully part of your desktop.
Epiphany follows the GNOME guidelines about usability. You don't have to learn how to use Epiphany. Epiphany just speaks your language.
Just works !
