IceWeasel IS Firefox, just the symbols were not licensed the way Debian likes it to. Thats the ONLY thing different. It's useless and btw, as already stated, theres NO default browser.

Your mentioned Windows port is REALLY REALLY OLD btw.

IceCat is NOT IceWeasel. Check the history of these useless forks. All Stallmanisms and nothing of any use.

Yes, Stallmanisms are not what we propagate here. We have RAPPS and it includes many NON FOSS apps, too. Any Windows app working is a big success for us and what makes ROS of use. Free stuff is ported to Linux etc, too. So why should you want to use a Windows Clone here?

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

IceWeasel is nearing end of its life anyway, the relationship between Mozilla and Debian is changing.

In the future I would recommend reading more carefully a post that resurrects a four year old topic. It might help in realizing that it's a copy/paste of a previous post and the poster itself was probably a spambot. Just saying.
