IMHO, one if the big reasons why Firefox is a better default than
Epiphany is that you can have Firefox installed alone, but if you
install Epiphany, you need to have Firefox installed too. Consequently,
if Epiphany is installed by default, users will have 2 browsers by
default, which would be bad for many reasons.
