Epiphany is a required part of the GNOME system package, which is why it
does not show up in the AppCafe list, since the AppCafe only deals with
PBI installations. If you install Chromium via the AppCafe, you should
then be able to select Chromium as the default browser in the control panel.
I have noticed that there is an annoying pop-up in Chromium that says
that it is not the default browser when it actually is. That is just an
error within the program itself, it isn't looking in the proper place
for the default applications. You should just be able to hit the "don't
show again" option on that pop-up and it won't bother you again. :-)
