IceCat 31.4.0 release

Item posted by Ruben Rodriguez <rubenquidam> on Wed 28 Jan 2015 09:21:33 PM UTC.

GNUzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the Firefox browser. Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software. While the Firefox source code from the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0. https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/

Source tarballs, binaries for generic GNU/Linux systems and translations are available at http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/31.4.0/

The most noticeable change for the users in this release would be the addition of the html5-video-everywhere, that allows video playback from several popular services without either Flash or JavaScript.
