4:05 pm Announcements

What is it ?

Epiphany is the GNOME web browser, based on the mozilla rendering engine. It aims to be simple and easy to use.

Epiphany 1.9.6 is the sixth release in the development series leading up to GNOME 2.14. In this release, the Add Bookmark dialog is even sexier than it already was and the NetworkManager extension has been integrated into the core.

Changes from Epiphany to 1.9.6

  • libnm-glib be-gone! Use NetworkManager directly via DBUS, by
    importing the excellent net-monitor extension directly into
    Epiphany. Code by Jean-François Rameau.

  • Revamped Bookmark Properties/Add Bookmark/New Topic dialogues.
