I spent five days testing this and I am done forever. From taking over default web calls (without my permission) to that nonsense about seeing how other browsers in your system are betraying you (which is accomplished by Epic doing its own snooping)... This browser has blown its reputation from the start in its own YDNTK nonsense and panic mongering. At best, it might serve those who do not want to or know how to control their own privacy, but even it that there are better, more sensible, more flexible alternatives for the savvy.

I'm running the final GM of Sierra and it appears to break Epic because it will no longer connect to the proxy.

Here's and interesting quote from MacInTouch about browsers, specifically Google vs Epic, and the network each use. My money? I'd rather have Google: [We don't know what Google does behind the scenes with the astoundingly detailed and intimate dossier of information it gets on everyone, nor do we know who views every bit of our information that travels through Epic's network. In any case, we do know very well that governments, service providers and corporations are willing, able and active in monitoring everything we do. -Ric Ford]

I disagree with JCH2 I don't find anything about this Browser not delightful. It is a good Browser and I don't find it intrusive to my own privacy.It does not snoop ,I really don't know what this critic of Epic says.I think it does exactly what it says it does.5 stars for an excellent Browser.

An insult will not help you for the hole you dug yourself in. In time everyone can see you are an insulting troll.Not only that but the browser doesn't do what you said. It doesn't make it a default browser. You must have gotten the settings wrong.......AGAIN!!!!!

I should have said it doesn't make it the default browser anymore. That was a mistake which the browser made. It has been corrected. I guess Wetnet you never make mistakes.

You see how you behave Jazzyguy? A bully and a troll. So sad. I've made mistakes but you see to not own up to it unless it's quoted back to you like I did. Who's the troll? I guess we both are. But you are worse with hour petulant high-horse superiority about your OS system claiming, "I don't know how you have your system set up. I'm NEVER had problems." HA! Shall I pull up the app you have that post on? You are such a fraud, troll AND bully!

"Give me White Hat any day over the Epic browser. Epic is too opaque, has 'captive' extensions (which altogether is suspicious), in addition to the aforementioned search engine. Aviator is made in the good ol' USA by a security company and was made for Mac before others demanded other platforms be supported."

I've switched to Aviator too. It's fully customizable from the Chrome Web Store, but unlike Chromium has no connection at all with Google.
At the same time, the protection you get is in no way comparable to what you can get with the Tor Bundle.

At this time I CANNOT recommend Aviator as an alternative to anything. See my 1/2 star review of the current rendition of Aviator over at its page on MacUpdate. Aviator is AWFUL to the point of being DANGEROUS at this time and I've abandoned bothering with it ever again. That's an incredible shame... on WhiteHat.

So, is this safe to use and how exactly does it protect me from the evils of the web that my browser of choice, FireFox, and my least favorite, Safari, are unable to protect my information. How can the programmers of Epic be more brilliant than the programmers of the other browsers that have the exactly the same safe guards. On the other hand, free is free and maybe you gets what you gets when its free.

WARNING: If you installed Epic along side Chromium, you may find that it is storing / using system folders and files in common. That is what three different uninstallers showed me. DO NOT USE AN UNINSTALLER TO REMOVE THIS. You may cripple Chromium, as well as other browsers that "fork" its code. Simply delete the main application and then do not install it again. This is another reason not to use this browser.

Another interesting fork of Chromium, though I will stick with the original. As an aside.... Do not use AdBlock+ (Plus) in any browser. While defending you from trackers, it is recording what you do itself. Get something better (AdBlock, plain and simple) for your Chromium or Chro-fork. Combine it with these other two defense system (and install in the order listed): 1. https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere 2. https://www.ghostery.com 3. https://getadblock.com/ And goodness gracious, if concerned about privacy, do not install them from an app-store. Get them at the source.

Just to fix some incorrect information: 1. You should NOT run multiple ad blockers at the same time. This is the equivalent of running multiple anti-virus programs at the same time. You’re not getting “better” filtering because they’re both fundamentally doing the same thing. BUT, running two WILL needlessly slow your browser down, much more than any single blocker. So, pick your favorite, and remove the other. 2. Adblock Plus is NOT tracking you. You can easily confirm this by running something like Little Snitch and monitoring your connections— none are going to Adblock’s servers. I believe what you’re referring to is the somewhat controversial “permit some non-intrusive ads” feature. As explained in their FAQ’s, you can easily turn this off. And they even show you their “exceptions list”. Ironically, Ghostery DOES track you, and they clearly explain so (and why) in their FAQ’s. Whether you pick Adblock Plus or Ghostery, their quote-unquote “questionable” policies shouldn’t bother you too much. They both provide a terrific service and functionality. As far as tracking, there’s really no such thing on the internet, even if you use Epic browser or even a Tor browser. They make it difficult, but not impossible. 3. Lastly, it’s redundant to even install an adblocker in Epic. It’s already built in!

This is a rather fast browser with a very good import possibility of firefox bookmarks. The built in bookmark manager is very easy to use and makes it a joy to arrange bookmarks. Until now I have no problem to open my old websites at a reasonable speed.

It's built on the Chromium engine which means you can download all Chrome extensions (including 1Password), though to preserve security it's probably best to use as few as possible and confine them to security apps like AdBlock+, Ghostery, etc. It has a built in proxy and other desirable security features. I'd suggest that Chromium users in particular try this out and see what you think. I'll rate this after I've used it for awhile.

With v.2447 the developers have blocked downloads from other parties so its no longer possible to import or retain Chrome extensions. Too bad, but it's also true that Epic has built in ad blocking, tracking and a number of other security features. You have to look up and enter your passwords manually, and History is automatically deleted when you close the browser. This is a good backup browser to be used for banking and other online financial transactions but because of its built in limitations I don't see it becoming anyone's default browser.
