Not long ago [already reviewed]
in the past Firefox forks Icecat
for some reason went into 404 void due to applied sanctions to Russia.
So, i was forced to find an alternative way and stumbled upon Chinese builds of [Iceweasel]
. Just want to digest this historical fact as a blog post.

I’m still using trusted [Icecat port by Muslayev]
. Problem is that it begin to show it’s age by not rendering some websites in a correct way.
After checking [Firefox release roadmap]
i find out that 91 ESR branch on which Icecat is based will reach EOL status at the end of the summer. So i’ll need a replacement to keep up with modern web standards. Chrome and original Firefox are not an options because of their telemetry framework and bloated nature.
