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.

I agree fully about the speed as well as the Bookmark manager.

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.

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.
