 Hmm... I can't think of a good generic example right now.  I know I've
 wished for the feature a couple of times.  If I stumble across the
 situation again I'll write it down.

 I'm switching to Epiphany mostly because for the smartbookmarks
 feature.  I have 8 of them right now (two more than in Galeon
 actually).  The reason is simple: they don't take any realstate on the
 screen (contrary to Galeon's) and are easier to use (type something,
 tap down arrow a couple of times).  TBH, I'm still not _that_ trilled
 about Epiphany's bookmark system.

 Personally I'd find "the sites that have changed since the last time I
 visited them" more useful, but yeah, I can see what he means.

 Oh, yeah... an "Open this topic in tabs" feature would be nice.  I know
 I can select the topic, select all the bookmarks and then select open
 in tabs, but when you do it daily it becomes bothersome.
