Mera Browser Mahaan!!

How would you feel when you can proudly boast about a product which belongs to your community, your local language, last but not the least your country? Great, isn’t it? Lo and Behold, India joins the browser wars by bringing in its own Epic Browser, and while reaching out to you, I request you all Indians to download and experience a new world of exploring internet.

With its unique in-built features, the Epic Browser is one of its kind. It provides a one stop solution for a huge audience, which covers not only one click social networking access, but also varied information resources from domains such as Shopping, Local Events, Videos, Travel, Job Opportunities, Stock Market, Sports and more.. The sidebar apps allow you to play music, watch videos, play games, create, read, update and delete documents from and to your computer.

Epic Browser specializes in its User Interface and has maintained optimal standards while changing themes or using any of the applet. Especially, the Tri-Color Orb is an exceptionally well designed graphic, I must say. It is in fact a winner at the first look.

Below mentioned are some highlights about the browser:
  • Epic Browser is the first ever web browser for India. Also world's only side apps browser.
  • The striking feature of the browser is the sidebar apps.
  • You can read and write in Indic fonts through the browser sidebar apps in order to localize.
  • Integrated with Epic Write, a full-processed Word Processor. We can easily create text documents, tables, images and reports using this app.
  • The user can instantaneously get the maps across the world and can get the driving directions for different locations.
  • Backup app helps the user to get the Backup of your documents from the computer to your Mail.
  • Completely customizable, with more than 1500 themes, wallpapers etc
  • Fully integrated with Firefox, hence enabling all Firefox Add-Ons compatibility.
Looking at such a fantastic browser deal, I have installed it today and am writing this blog through it. Indeed it’s not any 'just another browser' launched by a bunch of geeks. It’s a fully fledged, feature-packed, and efficient product. Most of all it is a FREE browser service provided to everybody in order to use, distribute and customize as per convenience.
However, there would be certain expectations apart from the bundle of generous features provided at the first go, some of the concerns are highlighted below:

# Hype vs Reality : Though the browser has launched with tremendous features will it live up to the hype? Of course, no one can answer this at the moment, but I pray that this browser gives a tough fight to all its competitors.
# Maintenance & Support : Any product launched in the market requires ample of support for usage, understanding, enhancement and so on. Even the maintainability if a software plays a major role in its success.
# Freeware vs. Licensing : Well, all good things in this world comes at a price. Epic Browser is free at the moment. What if the company starts charging for their services?



To conclude, I would say live in the present & download the browser today to enjoy its unlimited basket full of surprises in store.


Cheers!

  1. How would you like to use Firefox Setting and Addons with Epic???
    Go to your profile directory: (mine is, D:\Documents and Settings\USER\Application Data\Epic\Epic)
    The sample profile.ini would be something like:
    [General]
    StartWithLastProfile=0

    [Profile0]
    Name=default
    IsRelative=1
    Path=Profiles/7xr497qx.default

    Change it to:

    [General]
    StartWithLastProfile=0

    [Profile0]
    Name=default
    IsRelative=0
    Path=D:\Documents and Settings\USER\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\78ijisva.default

    ---where the later is my FF profile directory
    Wait for till I search something about the cache directory...

  2. And here's the second one:

    The Cache location can be changed by adding the "browser.cache.disk.parent_directory" preference and entering a folder path.

    To do it, type about:config in the EPIC address bar.

    Right click your mouse and select New String from the Menu. In the dialog box, just type in browser.cache.disk.parent_directory as the preference name and the new path to the cache location, for instance d:\temp
    (This would be your existing firefox cache directory, e.g. mine is D:\Documents and Settings\USER\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\78ijisva.default)

    So, now you have the EPIC interface with all your addons/bookmarks/settings and even cache...

    And you will only be able to use FF and EPIC simultaneously so no concurrency problems. Surely you can run more than one instance of profiles e.g. by "C:\Program Files\Epic\epic.exe" -p dev
    where "dev" is another one of your profiles or you can create one, it will prompt you to choose a profile on the above command!!!
