Package icecat

GNU version of Firefox browser

GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the Firefox ESR browser.
Extensions included to this version of IceCat:

 * LibreJS
   GNU LibreJS aims to address the JavaScript problem described in the article
   "The JavaScript Trap" of Richard Stallman.

 * HTTPS Everywhere
   HTTPS Everywhere is an extension that encrypts your communications with
   many major websites, making your browsing more secure.

 * ViewTube
   Watch videos from video sharing websites with extra options.

 * A set of companion extensions for LibreJS by Nathan Nichols
   are pre-installed, and provide workarounds to use some services at USPS,,,, McDonalds, and Google Docs
   without using nonfree JavaScript.

 * A series of configuration changes and tweaks were applied to ensure that
   IceCat does not initiate network connections that the user has not explicitly
   requested. This implies not downloading feeds, updates, blacklists or any
   other similar data needed during startup.
