Web is the default web browser for GNOME. Web provides a simple and minimalist interface for accessing the internet. Whilst it is developed primarily for GNOME, Web works acceptably in other desktop environments as well.

Note: Web was known as Epiphany prior to version 3.4. The application was given new descriptive names, one for each supported language. The name Epiphany is still used in numerous places such as the executable name, some package names, some desktop entries, and some GSettings schemas.

Installation

Web can be installed by installing the epiphany package from the official repositories. If you want to save login passwords, install gnome-keyring.

Configuration

Flash

See Flash#Flash Player.

Web Apps

Since version 3.0, Web can add web app launchers to GNOME Shell. To manage and remove them, navigate to about:applications in Web.

Troubleshooting

Pixelated fonts

Some websites such as github.com tend to use a bitmap font from X11, named Clean. To disable bitmap fonts, run:

# ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/70-no-bitmaps.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/

Font hinting

Web does not respect GNOME hinting settings, but respects Fontconfig one. Check Font configuration for further instructions.

Blocking advertisements

You can enable filtering by unchecking "Allow advertisements" in application preferences. By default, this will enable the EasyList list.

If this does not work, close GNOME Web, then delete your filters configuration:

rm -r ~/.config/epiphany/adblock/

and restart the application.


If more than one adblock list is required, create a file named filters.list in:

~/.config/epiphany/adblock/ 

and populate it with URLs in a semicolon formatted list. On next startup, the application should fetch and apply the new lists.
