The forum activity is quite low, the owners are very slow to respond to problems, and new posts have long delays until they appear in the forum. So I'm not very confident there's much support for this application.

I also noticed there is no updates to their blog.

Since they can't make money, I'm guessing they won't be able to sustain the product, and it will eventually fade. Maybe they'll open source the code.

Feels like a complete scam run by a shady company based in India. Wouldn't recommend to anyone even those who don't care about privacy

Fake privacy browser.

PS: Logo looks like tide pods.

Edit: To downvoters, check these:

Okay, I ironically installed Epic Browser myself. Built-in search engines are Yahoo Indonesia (regional), Yandex, Yandex KZ, Yandex RU, Yandex TR and Epic. I tried Epic search (epicsearch.in ; logo can't be clicked, which supposed to act as a link to its own homepage, which is unusual), search results are leaning toward Russian websites which is weird considering that Epic Browser is made in India.

Use this fat malware. What could possibly go wrong?

More like an EPIC FAIL! -- here's a CinemaSins' style litany of fails for a programme which proclaims loudly and insistently of being a champion of privacy.

  1. They only offer an streaming install - a small executable (called a 'stub') is available for download, executing which then causes the 'stub' to "phone home" and fetch the rest of the install.

Thats Privacy Fail even before you begin using this p.o.s.

  1. This method of install will fail silently on securely locked down computers - like mine - meaning that it'll present a dialogue with a close button lulling you into thinking that it installed successfully, but there'll be no means to launch the programme - no icon on the desktop, quick launch toolbar, or the start menu. Nothing in the Program Files folders.

Also no error message is displayed. You'll be left troubleshooting on your own. And the only mention of this issue is raised as a thread on their forum their reply to which please judge for yourself:

> german.delendik: Guest

Can't find the Epic browser application (being approved)

Hello. Today I wanted to give Epic browser a try, and installed it. Then I decided to launch it but IDK what application launches it. Please help

>> alok_epicteam Administrator

Re: Can't find the Epic browser application (being approved)

Hmmm, there should be an Epic icon there to click. In case the online installer didn't work and Epic didn't get installed, please go to %localappdata% then delete the Epic folder there then try installing Epic again.

---end quote---

Also, in order to seek help, this forum is the only resource. But you have to REGISTER agreeing to their terms and conditions and sharing an inordinate amount of personal information; help which should have been made available in a help file or a wiki not requiring registration -- another Privacy Fail!

This is in addition to the other fails called out in the reviews over here.

Verdict: Not even worth your time to evaluate or keep as a back-up browser on your computer. You're better off with K-Meleon instead.

I tried it on my mac. In Mojave, it worked for one day and now I cannot force quit it. I removed the app and am waiting to restart the iMac.

Sigh. It seemed like a good match....

I've been using this browser for a while, and the privacy features are great.

**I would keep using it, but there's a quirk that I cannot handle anymore. **

I'm a heavy keyboard shortcut user. Every browser I can think of has a convention for what key combination closes a tab. Epic, however, uses this keyboard combination to close the window, meaning all of the tabs.

Closing the whole window has the same effect as telling the program to quit. Since Epic is a privacy browser, whatever configuration of tabs I had up is just gone.

I accidentally quit Epic pretty much every time I use it. I can't stand it anymore... if you don't use keyboard shortcuts though, I think you'll like it a lot.
