Hidden Reflex, a Bangalore-based software startup, has launched a browser targeted at Indian audiences: Epic.
The browser has been created by a team of Indian engineers on the open-source Mozilla platform, it said in a statement. Any Internet user can now download the browser for free by logging onto the website www.epicbrowser.com.
“Epic provides a unique Indian browsing experience. Epic’s India sidebar supports Indian content by providing users access to the latest national and regional news from popular publications, live television channels, videos, stock quotes, live cricket scores, top music albums, and local events,” a release said.
The users can choose from over 1,500 customised Indian themes and wallpapers ranging from freedom fighters to famous Bollywood and regional film stars. Writing in Indian languages is also supported throughout Epic.
The users can instantly write in Indian languages on any webpage or in Write, Epic's free built-in word processor. Currently, 12 Indian languages are supported, the statement said.
Free antivirus scanning and healing is built into Epic, and another security measure warns users about to visit potentially dangerous sites.
