What is Iceraven?

Iceraven Browser is a web browser for Android icon Android, based on Mozilla's Fenix version of Mozilla Firefox icon Mozilla Firefox, GeckoView and Mozilla Android Components.

Our goal is to be a close fork of the new Firefox for Android that seeks to provide users with more options, more opportunities to customize (including a broad extension library), and more information about the pages they visit and how their browsers are interacting with those pages.

Notable features include:

  • about:config support
  • The ability to attempt to install a much longer list of add-ons than Mozilla's Fenix version of Firefox accepts. Currently the browser queries this AMO collection Most of them will not work, because they depend on code that Mozilla is still working on writing in android-components, but you may attempt to install them. If you don't see an add-on you want, you can request it.
  • No warranties or guarantees of security or updates or even stability! Note that Iceraven Browser includes some unstable code written by Mozilla, with our own added modifications on top, all shipped with the stable version of GeckoView engine. Hence, the browser may contain bugs introduced upstream. Binaries are currently built automatically by our GitHub release automation. These binaries are signed with a debug key. When we finally publish this somewhere official like F-Droid, we will sign the apks with a proper key suitable for public release. Due to the current way we create the releases and sign them, you may not want to rely on such "alpha" quality software as your primary web browser, as it will have bugs. So, use this browser only if you are comfortable with these limitations/potential risks.

Iceraven is a very good alternative to Mozilla Firefox. It has almost all of the features, access to more extensions, and increased privacy. All around, I greatly recommend it!

I personally have not had any issues with this browser, other than not really knowing how to add extensions. Had icecat prior, and also use Bromite used to use Brave But honestly like icecat much more than either of them. Definitely would recommend Iceraven

the maintainers are are crazy.
it was good for a while, but doesn't get updates for few months in a row and their github action and tests are broken for two years now. try to modify a firefox apk yourself using 7zip and apktool, the structure is pretty much the same all configurations are in .ja files as well as defaults you can change. very easy. use the nightly builds. http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/fenix/nightly/2022/09/
