The Epic Web Browsers

A few days ago, Yahoo.com informed users of a browser that is Made In India for Indians - Epic.

Well, to me this is just a marketing gimmick since any FOSS guy can tell that anybody can build a browser based on Open Source tools. The browser in question is based on Firefox.

There are many browsers that have forked from Mozilla Firefox mainly due to Mozilla Corporation's policies that do not strictly confirm to the Linux philiosphy.

Among these are (the ones I have used) :
IceWeasel
SwiftFox
Nakamora
Flock

There is no dearth of Open Source browsers in the planet today.

A few are:
Chromium
Konqueror
SeaMonkey
Epiphany
Galeon
Kazehakase
Midori
lobo
links2
dillo
netrik
netsurf
chimera
lynx
elinks
