Adobe Flash Player is a little buggy and an external utility like nspluginwrapper has to be used. For x86_64, there is an official package available in the multilib repository. For i686, you have to build it manually:
 
* Obtain the necessary files, for example from the [[ABS]] tree, or the [http://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/tree/nspluginwrapper/trunk/ web interface].
 
* Modify the PKGBUILD to make it compatible with i686:
 
  
{{File|name=PKGBUILD|content=...

[[Pacman|Install]] package {{Pkg|flashplugin}} from [[official repositories]]. Then Epiphany should be able to echo flash content.

Notes: please use the first argument of the template to provide more detailed indications. (Discuss in Talk:GNOME/Web#)

Epiphany is a simple web browser primarily intended for the GNOME desktop which works acceptably with other desktop environments as well.

Installation

To install Epiphany from the repositories, run:

# pacman -S epiphany

If you want to save login passwords, install gnome-keyring:

# pacman -S gnome-keyring

If you are using another desktop environment (DE) other than GNOME, you will probably have to create directory ~/.gnome2/epiphany. To do so, type:

$ mkdir -p ~/.gnome2/epiphany

Flash

Install package flashplugin from official repositories. Then Epiphany should be able to echo flash content.

Manage Web Apps

Since version 3.0, Epiphany can add "web app" launchers to GNOME Shell. You can manage and remove them by typing "about:applications" into the Epiphany address bar.

Fix Pixelated Fonts

Some websites such as github.com tend to use bitmap font from X11, named Clean.

Easy fix is to disable bitmap fonts, run:

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