Thanks for the information. I guess I'm just surprised that the dependencies are limited to firefox/firefox-esr/chromium. Seems like other browsers like Iceweasel are just arbitrarily left out.

apt-cache show gnome-core | grep Depends
It says "... firefox-esr (>= 30) | firefox (>= 30) | chromium ..."

alternatives instead of just flat-out trying to remove it.
