Exactly. If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it must
be a duck.
Iceweasel will be the same duck for ordinary users as Firefox.
The browser's startpage could explain that this browser is based on
Firefox and works just like Firefox. Browser's user agent string could
be amended with "(based on Firefox)" to make sure that sites created by
lame webmasters (using browser checks) would work just like in Firefox.
See what's Flock doing, BTW.
