Epiphany 3.26 is, unfortunately, not going to be packed with cool new features like 3.24 was. We’ve just been too busy working on improving WebKit this cycle. But there is one cool new thing: Firefox Sync support. You can sync bookmarks, history, passwords, and open tabs with other Epiphany instances and as well as both desktop and mobile Firefox. This is already enabled in 3.25.90. Just go to the Sync tab in Preferences and sign in or create your Firefox account there. Please test it out and report bugs now, so we can quash problems you find before 3.26.0 rather than after.
Some thank yous are in order:
- Thanks to Gabriel Ivascu, for writing all the code.
- Thanks to Google and Igalia for sponsoring Gabriel’s work.
- Thanks to Mozilla. This project would never have been possible if Mozilla had not carefully written its terms of service to allow such use.
Go forth and sync!
