Why search, when you can launch?
Epi introduces a new way to get to sites and documents — launching. Epi does what URLs, search, and bookmarks don't: it aims to give you the right result, every time, and fast.
URLs are machine-friendly, but not people-friendly. Mistyping or mistaking a URL can be frustrating (404 not found) or even dangerous (leading to phishing or malware attacks).
Epi checks the page you're on for safety and phishing protection. When you're launching, you're always getting trusted, official results.
Web search is too slow, advertising-focused, and the results are often irrelevant. Poorly tuned enterprise search engines make search in the workplace even harder.
Epi gives you relevant results from your web, in your context and all in private.
Browser bookmarks involve significant individual effort to assemble and maintain. Your personal bookmark collection can't scale to the whole web. And you can't share your bookmarks with your team.
Epi lets your team name your shared web together, and makes sharing this knowledge with new starters easy.
No matter what you want to see, or which app you're in, or which supported site you want to search, Epi works the same way.
And no matter what you're looking for, Epi links always have the same friendly format.
Epi lets you launch anything from anywhere, with the same universal interface you already know.
Epi runs on the Epiarc, the new globally distributed archetypal name system. Built on top of the Web, the Epiarc is a free and open user-driven network of networks providing a global system for information management.
