If you have a GNOME desktop, which is the default desktop with Debian,
the first thing that comes to mind is the Epiphany browser, which is
installed by default.  What I'm not sure of is how independent it is
from iceweasel.  It uses the same HTML rendering engine (Gecko) that
iceweasel does; so it may share some config files.  But that is what
I would investigate first, since it's probably already installed.

Happy New Year
