GNUzilla is the GNU version (a free software rebranding) of the Mozilla Application Suite (whose active successor is SeaMonkey).

Mozilla produces free and open-source software, but the binaries include trademarked artwork and some proprietary software such as Talkback or Breakpad, their crash reporter. Some Mozilla add-ons or plugins are also non-free software.

GNU IceCat[edit]

Main article: GNU IceCat

GNUzilla encompasses GNU IceCat, the GNU version of Mozilla's Firefox web browser. All releases are posted in the same FTP folder.

GNU IceCat is actively updated. GNU IceCat releases follow the LTS releases of Firefox, using the same version numbers (currently 31.5.0, on March 9, 2015).

The full GNUzilla is not actively updated. The last release of full GNUzilla was 24.0, on October 16, 2013. "The current focus is on GNU IceCat, our browser derived from Mozilla Firefox."
