Ghostview is a full function user interface for ghostscript 2.4 and later. Brief list of features: - Ghostview parses any known version of Adobe's Document Structuring Conventions. - Page size is automatically determined from the Document Structuring Comments. The user is able to override the values from the comments. - Window size is set to the bounding box for Encapsulated PostScript figures. - Default page size is Letter and can be changed via Xresources or application defaults file to A4 (or any other valid size) for our European friends. - Scrollbars appear when necessary. - Page orientation is automatically determined from the Document Structuring Comments. The user is able to override the values from the comments. - Ability to view at 4 orientations: Portrait, Landscape, Upside-down, and Seascape (for those who rotate landscape the other direction). - Ability to restrict rendering to grayscale or monochrome. (Requires ghostscript 2.6.1.) - Ability to mark pages for printing, or saving. (Good for people that printed a 100 page document and lost page 59 due to a printer jam.) - Can popup zoom windows at printer resolution (1 display dot = 1 printer dot). The Ghostview distribution includes a Ghostview Widget that people are encouraged to use in other programs.

''GNU IceCat discontinued official IceCatMobile support after version 38.6.0. Unofficial IceCatMobile releases can be downloaded with the F-Droid client. GNU IceCat (originally GNU IceWeasel) is part of GNUzilla (the GNU version of the Mozilla Application Suite). GNU IceCat is based on the the current official release of Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) with removal of trademarked artwork and proprietary components. However, IceCat is not a straight fork of Firefox ESR; instead, it is a parallel effort that works closely with and re-bases in synchronization on the latest Firefox ESR as the upstream supplier, with patches merged upstream whenever possible; although it should be noted that additional security updates are customized to IceCat occasionally.

Differences between IceCat and Firefox ESR

Important differences between Mozilla's Firefox and GNU IceCat is that IceCat has a focus on freedom and privacy (see settings.js for details).

  • Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) is not implemented: Whereas Firefox are being created such that they support Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) systems through their implementation of the Encrypted Media Extension (EME), GNU IceCat doesn't include an EME implementation as it opposes efforts to popularize and ease the dissemination of DRM technology.
    • Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. is not installed in about:addons > Plugins
    • The Play DRM-controlled content option (used to download and enable Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.) has been removed from about:preferences > Content
  • "Accept third-party cookies: Never"
  • WebRTC is enabled like in Firefox but prevent leaking the LAN ip. (Test WebRTC)
  • The proprietary program Mibbit has been removed.
  • Telemetry is disabled.
  • DuckDuckGo is the default search engine, which means that you can run "!Bangs" keywords in the location bar to use any search engine.


"We will always make IceCat block non-free JavaScript by default. If you want to permit nonfree software to run, you can easily disable LibreJS." - Richard Stallman

Customized add-ons

  • SpyBlock (Adblock Plus fork) to block privacy trackers.


GNU IceCat was formerly known as GNU IceWeasel but changed its name in 2008 to avoid confusion with Debian IceWeasel (who was rebranded back to Firefox in 2017 after Debian was being granted special permission from Mozilla ref).

The GNU IceCat developers dropped support for Replicant after version 38.6.0 because these builds are already provided by F-Droid.

GNU IceCat developers dropped support for macOS, and Windows, after version 38.8.0 in 2016: "Note that building binary packages for Windows and macOS currently requires non-free software, so we no longer distribute binary releases for those platforms.

The GNU Project keeps IceCat in synchronization with upstream development of Firefox while removing all trademarked artwork. Unlike Firefox, IceCat recommends only free software add-ons. With a focus on freedom and privacy, IceCat is designed to make it easy for the user to: block execution of non-free JavaScript with GNU LibreJS or disable all JS, block privacy trackers with SpyBlock (Adblock Plus fork), get redirected to HTTPS when possible with HTTPS Everywhere, and more!
