To reiterate myself:
"Replicant does ship the llvmpipe software renderer that has more complete EGL 
support than the Android software renderer. While not activated by default due 
to the slow speed, it is possible to run IceCatMobile on Replicant 6.0.0002 
once enabled.

If you have found some form of freedom issue with the llvmpipe renderer that 
invalidates its usage, please contact the Replicant developers about it.


Thanks, I added this to https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Free_Software_Directory:Free_software_replacements#Replicant

However, the policy of the page is to include only official releases explained in https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Free_Software_Directory:Free_software_replacements#Policy

If I change the policy to include unofficial releases, then I have to add unofficial releases for every software, unfortunate I don't have time with that.
