One thing that is sure is that you won't see the marketing
information. I'm not yet sure at this point what we'll do for the
Firefox Sync feature. Someone would have to test a custom server and see
if it is still working. Keeping the old sync functionality alive sounds
like a headache.

I for one don't consider Firefox Sync to be a very important feature for
my browsing experience. The question is, is it to some IceCat users?
Maybe someone here can share her/his experience with Sync.
