Epic is a user-friendly web browser that provides a clean environment, excellent browsing speed, and several powerful tools designed to protect your privacy while surfing the Internet.
Since it draws its source code from Chromium, the layout shouldn’t be surprising at all for most users accustomed to Chrome’s intuitive GUI.
Epic gives users the possibility to work with multiple tabs at the same time, create bookmarks, use hotkeys, zoom in or out, print the selected page, select the language, view a list with downloaded files, as well as import bookmarks and settings from Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
Apart from the aforementioned features which are comprised in any similar powerful web browser, Epic puts a special emphasis on protecting sensitive data stored in your computer from unauthorized viewing.
The application comes packed with several security modes which can be activated with just a few clicks.
This way, you can enable the proxy mode for making the program hide your IP address while navigating on the Internet, block third-party cookies, disable plugins, encrypt data, activate the “Do Not Track Me” feature, as well as block ads and trackers. Plus, you can view details about the blocked trackers and ads, and create blocking lists.
What’s more, Epic doesn’t store your searches and allow extensions to be installed for security and privacy reasons. This means other tools cannot track and extract data stored in your web browser.
Last but not least, the utility is able to clean all your browsing data (e.g. local storage, visited links, media cache, login data, we, Flash and Silverlight cookies, shortcuts) when you close it. Plus, it doesn’t send your search terms to other webpages that you have visited.
All in all, Epic proves to be a reliable web browser that offers a strong protection against potential privacy leaks that may compromise your system’s security. Its intuitive layout and easy-to-use blocking modes make it an ideal tool for beginners and professionals alike.
