Forgive my ignorance, but when it says "known to work with Mozilla 1.4", what does that mean? Does this mean you can have both Epiphany and Mozilla 1.4 running at the same time?
#2 epiphany uses the gecko rendering engine

so this means that it can use gecko from moz 1.4 ... which just means that epiphany is relatively up to date.

Yes that is what I was refering to when I wrote the message. I would suspect that earlier versions would work with Moz 1.4, but they were not listed as known to work and I have idea if they actually would (never used Epiphany in my life). The only reason I included that was that my "article" seemed really puny and I wanted some more facts.

"Adding screenshots here would be easy but we are busy reading flames on gnomedesktop."
I suspect the people doing the flames are much less likely to want to see your screenshots then those whe arn't. So who are you really hurting here? Please get over this and post some screenshots :)
#6 i agree...

I read the project site a couple of times, and I still don't really get it. Apparently, it's (another) simplified Gecko browser, designed for GNOME, and it's not as "bloated" (whatever) as Mozilla.
Unfortunuately, there's no screenshots, so I can't see what it looks like, but I'm sure it's swell.

It's pretty (I guess) but it doesn't appear all that simplified.
#5 Certificate Manager support
Friday July 18th, 2003 6:44 PM
I have noticed that many Gecko based browsers, like Epiphany and Firebird does not have a feature to manage the user certificates, without those features i'm unabled to use my bank website
Is sombody working to include this feature to Epiphany?

For redhat 9 , they are available here: http://dag.wieers.com/packages/epiphany/ ,
this is alsa a apt rpm repository ( see http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/ for using apt ) so you can issue the following commands: --- apt-get update apt-get install mozilla apt-get install epiphany ---
to install mozilla 1.4/gtk2 and epiphany 0.8 .

Get the TTLO extension for Firebird. It brings back the Mozilla panel.
#7 Please provide some binaries!

I mean, it can't be too hard for you to provide some rpms for standard rh gnome installations. I for one, would like to try out this thing, but I have better things to do than try to compile it myself. I also think you should consider those people who have installed their distribution without development packages (the default option in rh for example).

Thanks a lot! I tried your RPM packages and now Epiphany works for me too.
#15 Why not a binary tar.gz distro?

As with Mozilla ... I prefer to try out software by installing it just locally to a home dir of a test user, instead of doing a system wide install with an RPM. And you can still install it system-wide in /urs/local, should you wish so. Added benefit: you only need one for all flavors of linux.

What is the relationship, conceptionally, to Galeon, another Gnome-based browser with Gecko as the rendering engine? <p> I alos have the feeling that there is a certain inflation of "unbloated", i.e. feature-poor Gecko-based browsers lately. What made features and the idea to have powerful software that lets you do what you want so unpopular? Hmmm, probably poor MS GUI design .... IMO powerful software and many feature does not mean that you necesserily must have a complex GUI, but of course it is more difficult the get 100 features into a decent GUI than 10.
