Why you should try Epiphany as your default browser with GNOME 2.14

Filed under
Software

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.

Simple, ergonomic

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 !

The Licensing and Compliance Lab interviews AJ Jordon of gplenforced.org

I mean, if you disagree with copyleft that's fine (though I personally would argue with that position), but then you should use a suitable license. Like MIT. The very idea that we shouldn't enforce the GPL just doesn't make sense to me because it suggests that the text of the license is watery and unimportant. I don't know about you, but when I say I want my programs to respect users' freedom, I mean it. So GPL enforcement is important. It seemed to me that there are probably a lot of developers out there who want to support GPL enforcement but don't have a good way to voice that support. gplenforced.org is essentially a quick and dirty hack I wrote to make that dead-simple.
