What do you mean Epiphany <-> Gecko? Epiphany uses Gecko, just like
Firefox. Most of the Epiphany bugs are actually small GTK bugs, which
force it to do things it shouldn't.

However, most of these are easily fixable using python extensions not
larger that 50 lines. Furthermore, the ability to mod the browser as
much as we can using epiphany will allow for better adaptability and
integration. If building a Desktop is the goal, then using a browser
made for Windows is not a good choice.
