Hi ilya-fedin,

IceCat uses an independent folder for storing profiles, so you can have both installed at the same time. In fact, I'm usually working with both running.

This package (icecat-bin) comes from GNUzilla official binary compilation, so if you want more details about the schedule you should ask upstream.

As far as I know, IceCat follows Firefox ESR releases, so I don't see any inconvenient to have GTK3. If you want a pure GTK2 release you should build/make a package yourself, in base of icecat package in AUR[1] (which I maintain too).

Feel free to post there if you are interested in make your own package with GTK3/2 exclusive.

Hello, figue! I want to change firefox-gtk2-bin for icecat-bin, but I have several questions:
1) Whether icecat will migrate to gtk3?
2) And if is whether there will be gtk2/gtk2-bin version in aur?
Thanks in advance.

Thank you @dast to flag the package out-of-date. I'd forgot to update

@aphirst you need to import Rubén Rodríguez's GPG key if you want to build IceCat:

gpg --recv-keys 3C76EED7D7E04784

FYI this is a common step described in official wiki:

There should probably be a note somewhere about GPG.

This package is an update of the old AUR3 package. Sorry, but in the archive isn't the original author or maintainer, so thank you whoever you are.
