IceWeasel, Even Freer Than Firefox

IceWeasel LogoIceWeasel is a version of the Firefox browser created for use in “free” operating systems like Debian which try to eschew any element that can’t be freely reused by anyone, for any reason. Iceweasel was developed because Firefox and the Firefox logo are trademarked, and because some of the default Firefox plugins can’t be freely redistributed. (I like the idea of free-as-the-air software, but mainly I wanted to blog this because it gave me an excuse to use “weasel.”)
