IceCat 38.3.0 release

Item posted by Ruben Rodriguez <rubenquidam> on Tue 13 Oct 2015 04:07:44 AM 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.
