I can vagely remember the last time it came up, which appears to have been
in January 2005:


..and I think it came up before that even so you may need to dig back a
little further aswell to find more answers.

I find it easier to think about the question by turning it around; so that
you're thinking about why you/me/I/Jane might replace Firefox with Epiphany.

It might be interesting to make a list (for yourself, you don't need to send
it to the mailing list) of humans you know---such as a friend, mother,
sister, aunt---and see which positive reasons you can think of that each
person gains from using Epiphany.
