The World-Wide-Web is laced with people  using a bunch of browsers that are exceptionally adept, outstandingly competent and universally dominant, then why and how did the need for a new browser arise? Well, we hope the following answers your inquistions.

Alok Bharadwaj of Hidden Reflex, a software firm based in Bangalore, India, has developed and announced the first-ever Indian web browser which is also the world’s first web browser to feature built-in antivirus and anti-phishing protection – that’s something unheard of, right?

That’s not the only thing which is new —  the Epic browser features a unique browser layout design which is customized to suit the Indian browsing traits. It allows tabbed-browsing with tabs lined-up at the top, just as you’d expect  to see in Firefox or Opera web browsers.

An integrated side bar on the left provides you quick access to a wide range of tools including some integrated apps like orkut, facebook and twitter which are undoubtedly the most favorite social networking sites preferred by the Indian web-goers.

The sidebar also allows one-touch access to the browser’s integrated anti-virus which scans downloads automatically and kills viruses, if any. Furthermore, widgets like google maps, skins, jobs, news, gmail, yahoo, games and many more are also included.

There are to-do and notes apps which allow you to keep things noted and organized. The Epic browser also boasts an inbuilt document editor which  allows you to edit/compose documents on the go while the My Computer button allows you to access the files on your disk without navigation away from the browser.

Indian Web Browser : Epic ()

The Epic web browser can be customized with over 1500 free applications that integrate into the browser to add to its functionality. The Indic app in the browser lets you type in about 12 Indian languages.

Also, you can watch videos in a small window pane inside the browser as you check your mail or browse the web without having to switch the tab or navigate to another page.We’ve also noticed that the browser automatically detects if there are any embedded videos on the page and prompts for permission whether to play it in the sidepane or elsewhere.

The Epic web browser is developed on Mozilla Firefox and therefore supports about 10,000 firefox plug-ins which can be installed on the browser. Support for most popular apps including yahoomessenger, cricinfo which provides online cricket scores, bookmyshow for movie-goers and hundreds more of the likes have also been included.

Epic is the first Indian browser and certainly one of the most powerful web browsers out there yet. Don’t just take our word for it, you may want to try this browser with antivirus yourself. It’s absolutely free.

    Apparently, there doesn't seem to be a way to hide the sidebar. It just seems integral.
    However, we have contacted the authorities and will update you soon as soon as we hear from them.
