Cool Iceweasel IS Firefox


Everything including plugins, extensions, themes all work exactly the same with Iceweasel as they do with Firefox.

I dare. What prompted this, he asks with a big grin on his face?

Actually I don't agree completely. Iceweasel has a much better name.

Have you posted this at forums.debian.net?

Can we make this a sticky so we don't get a million and one threads here?

I have seen such threads myself and know there are a lot of folks that claim to have a lot of trouble with IW. FF according to many is trouble free, at least compared to IW.

In my experience that is just a crock of male bovine excrement.

I like my IW.

+1 on the sticky!

However, having tried IW for lack of IceApe in Lenny, I was glad to find IA back in the Squeeze repo's... But that's just my opinion
