Epic for Mac

Browse the web with security and speed.

What is Epic for Mac

Epic is a secure web browser that either blocks your information from being broadcast to online trackers, or removes that which could compromise your safety.

Comprehensive private browsing is the default, and all browsing data is deleted when you quit Epic.

What's new in Epic

Version 91.0.4472.114:
  • The update includes a better, more comprehensive Ad Blocker, whitelist support for the encrypted proxy, and support for most Chrome Webstore Extensions. For maximum privacy and security, Epic's new Ad Blocker is extremely comprehensive with over 300,000 filters! On older Macs, it may take a second or two longer on open to load them, but don't worry, you'll save several minutes in browsing by blocking trackers and ads.

Anyone using Epic in 2020? I use this in addition to Firefox. I just like Epic's simplicity and workability. I like the 9 VPN proxies offered, the umbrella to block ads and trackers, enable plug-ins. It is the go-to browser for setting up youtube for my kids, since it automatically blocks creepy, interrupting ads. I'm no obsessive investigator, so I cannot list pros and cons versus other browsers. I know many people like "Brave". I've been using Epic for a while and I still admire its capabilities and the ethos of the developers.

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.

"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."

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.

I changed my mind about this Browser. This browser on its own decided to make it my DEFAULT BROWSER. I did NOT check any preference for this at all. I used AppCleaner to remove it.

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.

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.

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.

Seems to be fast as Jb described in his review. It is an essentially secure browser as the Developer claims but I am not too concerned about security as I do no credit card transactions online and my personal data is protected.

Wow! This is fast and has features. Does it really protect? I'm not so sophisticated to know, but have used so many Mac browsers in the past 20 years or so and so far, like this one.... a lot.
