Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: iceape

As of Gusty Gibbon, Ubuntu does not include Seamonkey, but instead the
rebranded Iceape. Seeing as other Mozilla programs included with Ubuntu,
such as Firefox and Thunderbird, are not the rebranded versions produced
by Debian, I believe we should use Seamonkey over Iceape in the name of
consistency. Also, the few websites that do recognize Seamonkey with
browser sniffing are only confused by the Iceape user agent. Likewise,
it can be confusing to new users of Ubuntu when they try to use
Seamonkey. Just searching through user support areas such as the Ubuntu
Forums you find plenty of cases of confusion.
