    Epiphany's webkitgtk just crashes randomly whenever i visit web pages:
    Code:
    segfault at 0 ip 00007f1d1fe691e1 sp 00007ffd076aa580 error 4 in libwebkit2gtk-4.0.so.37.2.6[7f1d1f6f0000+20cd000]
    It is the only reason for not using this web browser with very well integrated UI on my Arch Linux recently.

      How does Epiphany compare against Midori?

        I wish they fixed that because it is almost unusable as of right now. Sometimes it takes 3 attempts to load a page properly. Also I would welcome some improvements on bookmark management.

          actually, bookmark manager is still there and awesome as ever (press Ctrl+B). problem is that you can organize without any way to us it

          still, first on my list would be replacing old menu with new popover menu. those are so slick and epiphany really feels strangely outdated once you get used to those

            My question is will Epiphany finally be able to load plugins like, oh I don't know... the gnome-shell plugin?

              It's not epiphany's webkit-gtk

              it might be webkit-gtk in general - that's at least the observation I made with midori

              Therefore it's not really suitable for production (= needs a certain degree of stability)

              I hope that things have improved with webkit-gtk 2.8

                If only I could switch away from Firefox which is pretty... *special*... lately.

                  That gimmick where they require an additional click to show you anything?



                  Eww no.

                    So it seems I was expecting too much to see a screenshot of the ui changes.
