This package browser is in early development. Mind the rough edges.


Entirely free browser derived from Mozilla Firefox

IceCat is the GNU version of the Firefox browser. It is entirely free software, which does not recommend non-free plugins and addons. It also features built-in privacy-protecting features. This package also includes the geckodriver command, which can be useful for automated web testing.

WARNING: IceCat 115 has not yet been released by the upstream IceCat project. This is a preview release, and does not currently meet the privacy-respecting standards of the IceCat project.
