Editors' Review

Hidden Reflex's Epic is a free Firefox-based Web browser optimized to support the major languages of India: Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi, Kannada, Telugu, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam, Urdu, and Punjabi. It's not a Firefox clone, though, nor is its appeal limited to those who speak or use the languages it supports. It offers a lot of unique features and a plethora of extras, making it a good alternative browser on its own merits.

Like Firefox, Epic is based on Mozilla's open-source code, so it has a familiar feel right from the start. Epic adds additional character sets, fonts, and menu entries. Epic has a unique and attractive theme, with optional skins, though we like the attractive colors and well-rendered icons of the default view. A slender left-hand sidebar linked to a wide variety of apps, tasks, and sites that opened in a larger Epic Apps sidebar. Epic boasts some 1,500 applications; naturally, they cover a lot of topics, interests, and needs--everything from antivirus to games--and many of them are useful to general users and not just Indic speakers. However, anyone with daily needs, ties to, interest in, or business with India will find apps for everything from food and drink to religion. The apps panel toggles open and closed; tabs for browsing and managing the apps made sampling them easy, too. Since it's based on Mozilla, Epic browses and loads as quickly as Firefox. It updates manually or automatically, too, and it uses the latest versions of Mozilla.

Epic's Indian languages, attractive interface, and Epic Apps distinguishes it from Firefox, but it offers still more, such as its built-in antivirus and antiphishing applications that can kill viruses and suspicious programs before they even get to your regular security software. Epic's support for Indian languages makes it a must-have for Indian speakers, but it can more than hold its own against other browsers. If you try it, we think you'll like it. We did!

"Great browser, but needs updating."

February 19, 2014  |  By Jeramee

 |  Version: Epic 1.2

Pros

Worked great when I first downloaded a few years ago. Customizable, smooth, fast.

Cons

It hasn't been updated in a few years, and is getting slow and glitchy.

Summary

It's too bad. This really is a great browser. Hopefully, some talented developer picks this up and updates it. It could be a major contender.

"Needs some work"

April 22, 2012  |  By bldcc

 |  Version: Epic 1.2

Pros

Seems pretty good on the whole.

Cons

Even with few tabs up, copy function frequently does not work, not a tolerable defect for me.

Summary

Has potential but they need to fix the copy function.

Updated on Apr 28, 2012

Update. Another problem : when I try to use Amazon.com , and I think CNET as well on this broswer, the scroll bars at the right and bottom disappear--a totally unacceptable glitch.

"it's worth a try!"

October 12, 2011  |  By bart05

 |  Version: Epic 1.2

Pros

As most of us are familiar with Firefox browser, this is not so different from it but Epic has tons of features and apps that stand out from other browsers. I don't know about Virus protection but who cares as long as it's fast and does the work.

Cons

Vertical and horizontal resizing not working correctly. To resize the window, we have to use the bottom-right / top-left side resizing option only.
