Its principles are simplicity and standards compliance. . Simplicity is achieved by a well designed user interface and reliance on external applications for performing external tasks (such as reading email). Simplicity does not mean less features; Epiphany has everything a modern web browser is expected to have. . Standards compliance is achieved on the HTML side by using the WebKitGTK+ rendering engine (which is based on the engine used by Apple Safari and Google Chrome); and on the user interface side by closely following the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) and by close integration with the GNOME desktop.
