It’s eight weeks since the last major Firefox release, so you know what that means: time for another one. Mozilla just released version 6, which includes…..uh…..some visual enhancements. This is what they call a full version? I’d call it an x.01 version increment.
What’s really annoying is that Mozilla is considering dispensing with version numbers altogether, and just telling you if you have the latest release or not. That’s bad enough for users who might be having technical problems, but even worse for web developers who want to make sure their sites work properly in all browser versions.
