Open software (aka gnome-software) and key in “Web“. Click its installation page and select the Install button. Fun fact: Web is also known as Epiphany browser. So if you want to install the program on a terminal session, you can key in its name as “epiphany-browser” on the prompt.
On GNOME desktop environment the download and installation will take less time than on other desktop environments such as XFCE, KDE, Cinnamon, etc since the browser is well integrated with it.
Below are some screenshots providing a general overview of the Web browser user interface:- Loading DuckDuckGo homepage on the first tab. The window is resized slightly small so the buttons and URL bar appears too close to each other.
Web integrates well with GNOME Linux distros like Fedora, Ubuntu, etc and gives you the best native look and feel. GNOME techs would call it “conforming with HIG (Human Interface Guidelines)”.Moreover, due to its good integration with the GNOME desktop environment, the browser launches faster than Firefox. So if you want a browser that is fast and renders the modern web technologies well, Web might be for you. However, every good thing has a bad thing as well. Read on below why.
