Iceweasel-UXP

Iceweasel-UXP is a browser application built on the Unified XUL Platform, which intends to preserve the look and feel of Aurora. It’s a re-branding of Basilisk by Moonchild Productions, at the same a hard fork from the Mozilla code repository (mozilla-central) with an SR-52 fork point, preserving the original code base prior to Firefox 60’s drastic web-engine changes.

Unlike previous Iceweasel versions, Iceweasel-UXP is not just a rebranding of Firefox. It contains a new browser engine and has it’s own codebase with support for modern web application technologies as well as legacy addons, in the spirit of cultural freedom and privacy.
