Bob Jonkman (firstname.lastname@example.org)'s status on Monday, 06-Mar-2017 19:49:46 UTC Bob Jonkman Upgraded! I wonder why I didn't get my ChangeDetection alert about the new !IceCat folder… https://www.changedetection.com/log/org/gnu/ftp/gnuzilla_log.html

GNUzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and GNU IceCat is the
GNU version of the Firefox browser. Its main advantage is an ethical
one: it is entirely free software. While the Firefox source code from
the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend
non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license
restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0.

Arun Isaac (அருண் ஐசக்) (email@example.com)'s status on Monday, 27-Jun-2016 10:45:31 UTC Arun Isaac (அருண் ஐசக்) #webtorrent needs the #MediaSource API available from Firefox 42 onwards. !icecat is still running version 38 only, and doesn't support the MediaSource API. :-(
Linux Pirate (firstname.lastname@example.org)'s status on Friday, 20-May-2016 04:54:37 UTC Linux Pirate @email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org it looks to me like icecat's developer, Reuben Rodriguez, follows along with whatever #security #updates are relevant to !icecat . However it seems to me that because of how it is built and configured Icecat has a smaller attack surface than #firefox does by default. It is likely even better than Firefox with regards to #security because of it.
