GNOME's Epiphany web-browser is under heavy development for the GNOME 3.20 cycle. Epiphany 3.19.1 was just released and it's packing a lot of new features.

First off, WebGL and WebAudio support are finally enabled in this browser by default while most tier-one browsers have long exposed these web APIs.

Besides enabling WebGL/WebAudio by default, Epiphany 3.19.1 also adds a new downloads manager, fixes the key binding handling, various code clean-ups, fixes to their enabled-by-default ad-blocker, support for system-wide installed web applications, and various other changes.

More details on the many Epiphany 3.19.1 browser changes can be found via this change-log list.
