"Obsolete" isn't the right term. <http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/obsolete>  I 
continued to use Lenny's Iceweasel and Chromium until about a month before the 
Squeeze release, and both received maintenance releases during the Lenny 
lifecycle.

Packages in Debian stable and oldstable might not be the most recently 
available from upstream (and this is true of *most* packages, not just web 
browsers), but they are generally well-maintained, quite usable, and in-use 
(by me, if no one else.)
