because the weasel is WAY cuter

actually from what i understand, the original name of icecat was
iceweasel, but then debian named their re-branded firefox as iceweasel
and the original GNU iceweasel decided to rename to icecat to avoid any
confusion - but now debian calls their default browser firefox again so
the weasel name with all it's legacy is floating in limbo

they actually split off the iceweasel branding into a separate package
so you can pretend that firefox-esr is still iceweasel - i just think
many people would welcome the return of the weasel proper
