Hi Jason, Narcis:

If anyone would like to work on a Windows version of IceCat, then by all
means go ahead. There's no problem providing a Windows version of
IceCat. However, it is not currently the priority (and there is a long
list of it.) So if anyone wants to step up and volunteer for a Windows
version, it would be helpful!
