Hello All

Welcome back to www.mysearchhistory.co.cc!

As I was busy with some other activities I couldn't get you some updates last month. Here I would like to introduce first ever Indian Web Browser powered by Mozilla. 

Epic Browser

Epic browser is based on Mozilla Firefox and is customized in look-and-feel and everything useful for Indian internet users. Epic browser has been released last week with none of Indians' expectation and quoted with the following taglines:
Meet Epic Your New Best Friend.
the first-ever web browser for India
the world's only sidebar apps browser
the world's only antivirus browser

So I just wanted to give it a try as I am always curious on testing features of different browser. The best part is It's free and just 11 MB in size. I would bring you a review about the browser.

Epic Browser Review

As Epic is developed from Mozilla Firefox which is open-source based and completely free to use/distribute, Epic has more customized features for Indian internet users along with the default Firefox features. To begin my review, it is very easy to install and use Epic on your system, and enjoy its features. I would discuss more about Epic in the following sections.
1. Look-and-Feel - Skin a new look
The bowser looks different comparing to other browsers and is like cross of firefox with Google Chrome. All browser components float over a single image which can be changeable called Skin. These skins are especially of Indian sceneries and celebrities - a plus point. However the default things of Firefox like Menu, Search bar, Address bar all are same, except few modifications to icons.
