Fwd: what is the reason for not making epiphany the default browser?

I would just like to ask if the aim is to please the common user, or
the "new and unexperienced".... because there is a big difference.

Personally, i just think that users should not be treated like they
are completely clueless, because i personally believe a fair portion
will have its specific needs.

I find it hard that epiphany can even try to compete with ff:
 - it isnt't THAT much simpler to use than ff.
 - it lacks features
 - no extensions
 - many users coming from windows will feel right at home with
firefox, and instead would have to get used to a new browser...
 - easier to find support in ff

so for default i sincerely think ff does its job much better, also
it's getting some new features, less bugs and becoming more
responsive. for me it's a no-brainer.
