ElementaryOS develops in / on Ubuntu LTS; their patches are for epiphany 3.18.5(-ubuntu, patches included in their bzr).

Two patches are problematic:
debian/patches/99_toolbar_add_bookmark_button.patch
epiphany segfaults immediately with this patch; disabled.

debian/patches/99_tabs_double_click_opens_new_tab.patch
Double click on tab bar segfaults epiphany with this patch; disabled.

I suspect the problem is incompatibility with a dependency, such as Archlinux's more up-to-date webkit.

It's unfortunate about the double click for new tab feature--this is part of the Pantheon Desktop experience: pantheon-files, pantheon-terminal, and epiphany-pantheon share a common tab interface (close box on the left, double click on tabs or tab bar for new tab).

The nice thing they do with epiphany really, is minimize the menus and add a few familiar buttons (home, bookmarks). It's a good amount of streamlining and compliments their low-learning-curve, slick but simple design. I just wish they'd move upstream a bit!
