linux default iconGNU IceCat Publisher's description

GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the popular Firefox web browser.

GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the popular Firefox web browser.

Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software. While the source code from the Mozilla project is free software, the binaries that they release include additional non-free software. Also, they distribute and recommend non-free software as plug-ins.

In addition, GNU IceCat includes some privacy protection features:

- Some sites refer to zero-size images on other hosts to keep track of cookies. When IceCat detects this mechanism it blocks cookies from the site hosting the zero-length image file. (It is possible to re-enable such a site by removing it from the blocked hosts list.)
- Other sites rewrite the host name in links redirecting the user to another site, mainly to "spy" on clicks. When this behavior is detected, IceCat shows a message alerting the user.

What's New in This Release:

В· This new version includes the changes made in Firefox 3.0.5.

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
