The GNOME Project has also announced today that a new development release of the Epiphany 3.12 web browser for the upcoming GNOME 3.12 desktop environment is now available for download and testing.

Epiphany 3.11.3 adds HTTPS (secure HTTP) support for both the DuckDuckGo and Google search engines, improves the looks of the location bar and the downloads bar, improves filename suggestion for downloads, and cleans up the style of the about: pages.

Moreover, the new development version of Epiphany 3.12 introduces an option that allows users to easily change the default search engine, uses a custom style for the incognito mode, no longer opens downloads automatically, and removes analytics from browsed URLs when the 'Do Not Track' options is active.
