Gonna do a rollback of Epiphany to 3.26.6 tomorrow after the dust settles from libpng upgrade (which affects WebkitGtk+), given the newer 3.28.x series doesn't support the old WebkitGtk, which we need so GOA, Liferea, Midori, etc. work.

It would be nice to find a workaround so that 3.28.x+ can be installed.

3.28.x fixed a lot of outstanding bugs and has enhanced security.

I like using Gnome Web for create app-like versions of websites that don't have Linux apps.
