Debian Junior Project
Summary
Internet
Debian Jr. Internet tools

For children, a wide variety of Internet tools are not necessary to get started. Most users will find the Iceweasel web browser covers their needs. As children's familiarity and sophistication of use of the Internet develops, you will probably want to add more Internet clients to the child's system.

Epiphany is a simple yet powerful GNOME web browser targeted at non-technical users. Its principles are simplicity and standards compliance.

Simplicity is achieved by a well designed user interface and reliance on external applications for performing external tasks (such as reading email). Simplicity does not mean less features; Epiphany has everything a modern web browser is expected to have.

Standards compliance is achieved on the HTML side by using the WebKitGTK+ rendering engine (which is based on the engine used by Apple Safari and Google Chrome); and on the user interface side by closely following the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) and by close integration with the GNOME desktop.
