It seems like FF 6 is upon is. Weren't we at version 4 two months ago? What's going on here? Did they change their versioning system? Are they trying to beat IE to version 10?

Quirk Search Status is working and will give you Toolbar PR and Alexa ranking. Of course if those are not the features you want, its not much good to you!

I realize that I posted this news back in April, but I'm surprised that anyone is surprised by the pace....

Mozilla Switches Firefox to 18-Week Development Cycle
Firefox 5 Expected June 21

I'm concerned in an open development system, though, where we all rely on Addons, that we're going to have some important Addons/Plug-Ins/Extensions either falling by the wayside or dropping out because the developers can't or won't keep up.

And it's getting to be a pain to check the currency status of every single Addon before I update. At the moment, I remember that most updated Addons from the last round indicated they'd be OK through v6, which means that FF is probably not breaking compatibility with every upgrade.

And the interface... I still find myself occasionally looking for the "home" icon with this version. Anyway, is v6 OK, or should I wait for the tweaks? Or, is v6 really just v5.01? ;)

My update arrived just minutes ago, was installed and back in business (including the FF restart) in less than two minutes. Do suggest that those holding on to their elder versions of FF (some as far back as 3x) rethink and move to the current version.
