Full description '''GNUzilla''' is the GNU version of the M'''GNUzilla''' is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and '''GNU IceCat''' is the GNU version of the Firefox browser. The GNU Project keeps IceCat in synchronization with upstream development of Firefox ESR (Extended Support Release, the security and stability focused version) with [http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gnuzilla.git scripts]. The goal of the IceCat project is to provide a completely free version of the popular mozilla source code. It is part of Gnuzilla, the umbrella project analogous to Mozilla. While the source code from the Mozilla project is free software, the binaries that they release include additional non-free software extensions. Firefox add-on repository (addon.mozilla.org) consist of both free and non-free software (Mozilla develop some of them). IceCat uses Trisquel web browser repository that only allow free software. IceCat does keep the triple licensing used by Firefox to facilitate the reuse of code. IceCat also 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. IceCat shows a message alerting the user.
