Yes, but the key question is *why* are they makling these connections. If they are sending your 
private data somewhere that of course is be bad. But if they are fetching data actually used to 
improve privacy? Modern pbrowser provide tracking protection, dangerous site protection, ad 
blocking - they need to get the data required to get this right from somewhere. So, to me the 
fact that a browser is making connections to various web servers doesn't really tell me anything 
about its security or privacy practices.

I did try out Icecat. This one is truly for the masochists. If I want a browser where nothing 
works because of privacy concerns I go with Tor. It was however interesting to try out something 
new, if only for 10 minutes.
