    Well, I think GOOGLE & MOZILLA partnership gets over in 2012, so can we think that it is the NEW BEGINING of web browsing. As,when GOOGLE was readily avavilable with MOZILLA in the begining, that same thing might be possible with MOZILLA + EPIC ?
    Who knows, but well, as an INDIA, I wish it could be.
    BEst wishes to EPIC.
