    Firefox 28 beta with html5

    .
    Firefox 28 beta is available at
    http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/channel/

    This beta purports to transform Iceweasel to Firefox 28 beta capability.
    That is, it replaces flash with html5. May need to add flash blocker to
    get the whole effect. I am experimenting with IceWeasel 21 so modified.

    Caveat Emptor; installation probably not easily reversible.

    You might like to give Firefox 28,
    or another browser, a test:

    FWIW

    .
    Iceweasel in Knoppix 7.2 is upgradable to Iceweasel 24.3.0 right now with Synaptic;
    that's equivalent to Firefox 24.

    Iceweasel 24 passes an html5 test with a score of 432 out of 555 points; and

    The html5 test is at: http://html5test.com/
