What confuses me about this is the existence of the GNU fork called
Iceweasel.  Since the Firefox being considered for Debian will not be
the GNU IceWeasel, but instead simply a Firefox stripped of the name
and logos (if I have followed the comments on this topic so far), I
would think that there would be some real confusion in using this
name.  I have been wondering why Debian would use a name which is
already being used for another project?  And what if Debian decides to
include a package of the GNU browser later?
