Actually Epiphany centralizes where our Bookmarks and Browser History
are located; no longer do GNOME apps have to try to detect what browser
is being used (although that is still a decent idea). Applications like
Dashboard and others can *now* integrate bookmark and history
information to provide a better user experience.
I believe Gnome-Terminal is supposed to provide better font and
internationalization support than xterm did, along with profiles and a
host of other features. And Unix systems have always required a
terminal app, so this is a ridiculous argument.
gEdit is just a great text editor written by people with usability in
I'm not arguing that RB not be included in a future release, like 2.8 or
something. However right now I don't believe that it's ready or
provides a significantly better experience. Plus it's good to hash out
exactly why something should be included.
