GNU IceCatMobile

https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/
IceCatMobile is the lightweight version of the GNU IceCat browser.

For the desktop variant and full description about the project, see IceCat.

GNU IceCat discontinued official IceCatMobile support after version 38.6.0. Unofficial IceCatMobile releases can be downloaded with F-Droid.

This page specifically lists IceCatMobile compatible add-ons in addition, Copy Profile do not exist for the desktop version for example. Add-ons from this AMO collection have been applied here.

As usual IceCatMobile comes with SpyBlock, a modified variant of Adblock Plus. IceCatMobile is more free software liberal than Adblock Browser, a fork of Firefox for Android with Adblock Plus installed (see https://hg.adblockplus.org/adblockbrowser/file/tip/LICENSE).

Documentation

The locales (language packs) are included in IceCatMobile.
