The epic browser has a lot of applications such as web snippet tool, timer, to-do list, text editor, games, Google Maps, chatting windows like Gtalk, social networking sites such as Orkut, facebook and twitter, email applications, and several other web applications. Mostly, Indian users need short cut for social sites and To-do list and Alerts, because most of the time, the person will forget the important activity in his busy schedule. So, we hope Epic will remind everything to that user at the exact time.

It has a large number of themes and wallpapers related to India and Indian cultures. As of now, there are 1500+ more free applications, which will work with Epic browser and, it will support 12 Indian languages including Hindi, Bengali, Punjabi, Marathi, Gujarati, Sanskrit, Nepali, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Urdu.

Through Epic browser itself, we can open the files which are available in "My Computer". Also, we can listen to songs, music through browser itself. So we don't want to open the "My computer" separately.

Anti-Virus Scanning :
Epic is claimed to be the first web browser providing built-in anti-virus and protection. The best feature provided by Epic is Anti-virus scanning which is not available in any other browser. Most of the viruses come to our computer through Internet only, The concept used in Epic browser for Virus scanning is very new to the computer world and its unique, If our browser is secure, then everything will be secure. For example, consider, if the door of the home is secure, then obviously that home is secured. Also, we can scan for viruses for our computer hard disk, external disk through Epic browser.

How to activate antivirus on Epic?

From the above question, you don't need to think its a complex process. its very simple, we need to understand that, Epic will not enable the Anti-Virus scanning by default. It will start to active the first time when we downloading something from the Internet. When we download Image or songs or any other, it will ask, "Want to scan this download for Viruses?"; If we click on this or if we allow scanning for viruses, then the Epic will start downloading the Virus Definition into the computer,. This Epic Virus definition is approximate. 25MB in size. Once the Virus Definition is downloaded we can use it as usual and it's free of cost.

The only browser which has Built-in Anti Virus scanning is Epic. Epic has some more unique features compare to other browsers. But if the developers are concentrated on this feature more, Epic browser will be used all over the world, not only in India.

It has a separate button for accessing social sites such as Orkut, Facebook, Twitter.
Change the wallpaper of the browser as well as in the desktop.
Browse the files through browser itself.

In the sidebar Application, Epic has lots of applications such as On-line Television channels, Video clips from You-tube and so on, uploading files, photos, songs to Internet easily. Also who have writing a article or blogger in Internet or taking some information from Internet, surely Epic will reduce their work. For example, if we are searching about some topic and need to take information, we will copy the page and paste it at some other files. For that, we need to do copy-paste operation and opening a file frequently. To avoid this, browser have "Inbuilt writing Editor" application in Epic.

It has one another feature called "Private browsing". There is a button in the left side of the top corner. This is used to change the normal browsing to private browsing and vice versa. When it comes to private browsing, it will not store the browsing history. One more feature is, when loading the website, Epic will suggest us, the website is secure or not. When loading a web page, if the green icon notify comes in the address bar, then the web page is secure. If Red Icon comes, the the web page is not secured.

Apart from this, Epic give a facility to play lot of games in the browser itself, so we don't need to spent lot of times in the Internet to search and play games. Also it reduced the Internet usage, so we don't need to spent lot of money on Internet.

Advantage of Epic:

  •  Epic is not directly supported on Linux and Mac platform.

The expectation on Epic browser :
