    Its good but the UI isn't better than firefox 4. The apps are also good like the built in antivirus but still it will take much improvements for Epic before i start using it.

    I am using it and I liking its apps :), specially the app for uploading files to Ur gamil. Nice work. Only the default look of the browser needs to be more cleaner and after that it would look more elegant and professional

      mr. dinesh, if you go to any mail box via/thru epic browser, you will find the language selection everywhere, incl. your mail box, chat box etc. just select the language from the drop box, tick in the small square box besides it and start chatting / writing in the language of your desire. just type in english, for eg. aap kaise ho? and it will translate itself the moment you press space bar. Try it out.

    This is a markedly Indian browser, unlike Indian customisations on other browsers. I found it quite well researched. Of course, one has to make some compromises to achieve some new functionalities but this one maintains is a good balance.

    Great Awesome Unique browser ! but something still missing ! Please add : "Copy to Note" and "Fit to width" features as in Opera, Also add "Synchronizing bookmark" feature as opera, if possible, because all of these are very useful features of that very successful browser. We can add Dictionary in sidebar of Epic, but it would be more useful if it has "Google Dictionary (by Google)" as Chrome (so it can be use without opening of a new window or page reload ! ). Epic Sidebar is very helpful but it decrease main windows size, please add a auto hide option or tab option or make it Transparent, if possible. Sidebar Video works fine but during watching videos if we check another sidebar options like 'Facebook or twitter sidebar' then it stopped instead of paused, According to my personal opinion Epic's only negative point is its interface; Skin for Epic is just Excellent but Wallpapers resolution are not good, and Sidebar not looks good even after applied skin, Please take a look about its interface. Last but not the least, that is the main website page say "..first ever web browser for India", why ? Just for Native Languages and Themes !! Please add more languages and International themes and Make it for World (according to my knowledge none of the browser says its for USA or CANADA or for specific countries..) Anyway, Thanks for this GREAT FAST MOST USEFUL BROWSER, PS: Sorry for my bad English.

    The upcoming versions should be known as Fail. So when you use it, you can read EPIC FAIL.
