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 ways that hinder freedom 0.

GNU IceCat  has multiple practical advantages as well, such as better
privacy and security settings, extensive blocking of sites that may
track the user's browsing habits, or the inclusion of LibreJS and other
extensions that help browse without running non-free javascript.
