GNOME's Epiphany Experiences A Facelift

Epiphany, the web-browser for the GNOME desktop, is receiving a rather significant facelift as it becomes more important to the GNOME3 desktop.

There was a WebKitGTK+ hack-fest taking place last week where the WebKitGTK+ rendering engine and Epiphany were worked on extensively. In this blog posting is a sneak preview of what's coming to this open-source GNOME web browser.

Among the focuses of the new Epiphany is to increase the space available to page content, potentially eliminating the tab bar and replacing it with a more convenient and improved way to switch between pages, a new feature called "Queues", and many other ideas. Some of the other action items are Web Application integration and upcoming WebKit2 support.

Some of these improvements to Epiphany will be ready for GNOME 3.4 while the other work will hopefully land for GNOME 3.6. An Epiphany 3.4 road-map is available on GNOME Live.

Do you prefer GNOME's Epiphany over Firefox, Chrome/Chromium, and the other Linux web-browser alternatives? It would be interesting to hear your thoughts in the forums.
