Cool .. Iceweasel never quite had the same 'ring' as Firefox, though Icedove rolls off the tongue nicely :)

Yeah, I saw this news on DWW.  I always thought Iceweasel was a dumb name.  I mean, weasels and foxes have nothing in common.  ;)

I knew you weren't going to like the news, VinDSL.  I discovered Iceweasle with CrunchBang, liked the dark look of it there, and thought the name was pretty clever.  But maybe now somebody will come up with an Iceweasle add-on for Firefox. 

We'll see! ;)
