I second the call for Iceweasel to be the new default browser, and for
Firefox to be moved to restricted.  I would love it if Mozilla changed
its mind on this issue, but I can't see it happening.  They always
prefer to ignore the wishes of their users, such as when they randomly
changed the function of the backspace key to mean "page up" instead of
"go back".  There was a huge outcry then, and still Mozilla refused to
budge.  They are self-destructive, unfortunately, fueled by legal fear.
Ubuntu should learn from Mozilla's mistakes, if it wants to survive.
Thankfully Debian does not have this problem of being corporatised.  It
will be interesting to see if Google handles this issue any better once
Chrome for Linux is finished...
