The Epiphany development team announced a few days ago that the unstable version 3.9.2 of the Epiphany web browser for the GNOME desktop environment is available for testing.

The good news in this release is that the developers removed the support for the WebKit1 API layer, in favor of WebKit2, which is far more advanced.

Moreover, Epiphany 3.9.2 is now able to start up with Wayland, and it allows users to run a standalone instance with a custom profile.

The encoding dialog has been fixed and the template pages can now be compiled as GResources. Lots of other minor issues have been fixed in Epiphany 3.9.2, check the official raw changelog for details.

Download Epiphany 3.9.2 right now from Softpedia. Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
