[Note: Not even Firefox itself can run on Replicant]


Planned by the IceCat developer(s).


Background to the intervention: IceCatMobile cannot run on Replicant: "Firefox 52 has an opengl 2.0 dependency which replicant can't do because it requires nonfree software (at least on the galaxy s3, which is the best phone choice for replicant afaik)." - Ian Kelling

IceCat virtual image

Not developed.

Background to the intervention: From http://www.pcworld.com/article/227838/free_browser_in_a_box_runs_firefox4_with_ultra_security.html

A new solution launched this week by German Sirrix AG <http://www.sirrix.de/>, however, uses Firefox 4 <http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/223079/why_firefox_4_is_winning_the_browser_battle.html>, Linux and virtualization to create what it calls a "browser in a box" that keeps all malware isolated and out of the user's main operating system.

Originally created at the request of the German federal government, BitBox <http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=de&tl=en&twu=1&u=http://www.sirrix.de/content/pages/57064.htm&usg=ALkJrhhqiyXXi4jGbq0RUPMHqfi348qrog> (short for "browser in the box") runs on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 as well as Debian Linux, Ubuntu <http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/226530/ubuntu_1104_natty_narwhal_makes_splashy_debut.html>, OpenSUSE and Gentoo, allowing users to surf the Web worry-free, Sirrix says.
