Installing and launching epiphany-browser

Postby NewToLinux » 2019-07-26 12:45

I have installed epiphany-browser on my Debian Jessie system.
When I tried to launch it by typing

epiphany-browser

nothing happened.

Can anyone please suggest a reason for this problem ?

Thanks.

Don't use Epiphany for non-trusted websites, it uses the webkit rendering engine which isn't updated for the stable releases and so contains known security holes. See the official Release Notes for more on this.
