just a few weeks ago i actually suggested that GNU change the name of
icecat back to iceweasel - the response was that the GNU browser has
been known as icecat for such a long time that it would be confusing to
change it now


i like the idea of keeping the iceweasel name because of the similarity
with icecat - the situation is not very confusing now - as of now one
can say that the difference is that icecat is LTS and iceweasel is
rolling - what could become a confusion depends on what hyperbola
decides to call their browser - if hyperbola  is to be an LTS distro
then presumably it's browser would follow the upstream ESR releases but
if that browser is also to be named iceweasel then the branding
recognition will be diluted in it's meaning
