(Just curious) IceWeasel = IceCat?


I've been hearing that GNU's IceWeasel will be renamed to IceCat. If this is so, will Debian adopt that version as well or stick with it's own version (IceWeasel)? Personally, I think IceCat would be an improvement.

I hope so. Heh.
I'm just wondering if "IceCat" will be in Debian or if it will remain "IceWeasel" since the two current Iceweasels are technically two different derivatives. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Hehe. Is this for real? I had wondered before if they could have come up with a worse name than Iceweasel but in Icecat they've managed it.
