        You forgot about its developers
        I assume the devs use different browsers most of the time to see which features to copy (and in most cases which features to ignore), and start epiphany just to test things.

          I'm a KDE+nVidia+X11 user who's fed up with pro-GNOME fanboys non-productively ragging on KDE every thread they can.

            As have been stated on numerous occasions before, we can in fact know for sure that there are more users of Epiphany than its developers. Since the maintainers of Epiphany work for the for-profit software consultancy and development company Igalia:

            https://www.igalia.com/technology/browsers
            https://github.com/Igalia/epiphany-gnomeos
            ​​​​​​
            So it is incorrect to assume that their resources could somehow be "redirected" to work on something else that "random gnome user" think is more important. They have a commercial interest in working on Epiphany. As long as that commercial interest remains, Igalia will continue to sponsor its development. Easy as that.

              So exactly where is it commercially used you might ask?

              I don't know since that information is not public. But the following paragraph from their website might give us a hint:

              In addition to our work in web engines, we have considerable experience in creating, maintaining, and optimizing browsers to meet the tough requirements of embedded devices.

                I've found this repo for 41 pre for Arch Linux: https://gitlab.com/fabis_cafe/gnome-...gnome-unstable
                Is there a PPA for Ubuntu available?

                  The same with KDE fanboys, both of you should use Budgie as it's the best DE out there. If you want to be productive you go Budgie!

                    It's not perfect but it's still 10x times better unfortunately

                      The gap is so closed that you can't even detach your external screen (or let it go into power saving mode) without crashing the whole compositor...
