What does GNOME Web (epiphany) need to be 'production' ready?
Open, NormalPublic


Since there is a long-standing wish to move from Purebrowser to GNOME Web we need to understand what that means from a user's point of view. This tracker can track what is missing and what is needed for Web to become the everyday, convergent, production browser.

  • What privacy plugins, like HTTPS everywhere, are needed?
  • Is DRM enablement on by default in GNOME Web? If not, can it be enabled?
  • What needs to happen for GNOME Web to be able to support WebRTC? (Some collateral information available)
  • What interface changes need to be made to make Web work on both a handheld device and a laptop?

There are in fact 2 long-standing wishes:

  • move from PureBrowser to Falkon in the Plasma build
