Introducing GNUzilla!

GNUzilla is the GNU/Linux truly free version of the ever popular Mozilla suite.

With the ever increasing popularity of the new mozilla-derived FireFox browser, the GNUzilla suite will provide its own version of this popular program, to be dubbed 'IceWeasel'. has put most of its effort in the development of FireFox and Thunderbird, much to the detriment of the Mozilla Application Suite.

Upon completion of GNUzilla's First Program Development (IceWeasel), we will secondly move right into the development of GNU/Linux version of the Mozilla Application Suite 'SeaMonkey', that will be called 'LessZilla'.

Countrary to some other Mozilla Source Builds, no proprietary software will be included, according and adhering to the GPL.


There is currently a test binary release for GNU/Linux / x86 32 bit available, as well as its corresponding source code. You can fetch all available releases with the following methods: [via FTP] [via HTTP]

cvs co gnuzilla [via anonymous CVS].

It can also be found on one of our FTP mirrors.


Documentation specific for GNUzilla is not available yet.
