Wave says Epiphany is not supported. It does have a way of saying 'let me through anyway', but many users see that page and go try with Firefox instead because they think the browser doesn't work.

Google's main page does a nice fade-in effect. That is not presented to Epiphany. I'm not a google power user, so I am pretty sure there are other places in which Epiphany ends up seeing a crippled version of a feature.

My current U-A:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-gb) AppleWebKit/531.2+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/531.2+ Debian/squeeze (2.30.2-3) Epiphany/2.30.2

I've had many googlers say they would look into these problems since January. Invariably all communications came to a halt somewhere down the line after a promise of these issues being on their way to be fixed. The most promising exchange brought up the possibility of putting Epiphany in the "Safari" bucket for google.com (they seem to have Safari, Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera, and "other" buckets, and we end up on the last one). The whole thing is quite depressing if you ask me, especially coming from someone who should be leading by example, and who has the same kind of bullshit imposed on their own browser by others.
