Brand X version 17 must be a better product than Brand Y version 10?
I mean it's got a bigger number; that must mean a lot, no?
Whew! That sure makes me glad I'm on Chrome 23. So then you think it must be more secure than Firefox 17? Firefox better get in gear!
FF 8.0.1 released Nov 21, 2011
FF 21.0.0 scheduled for May 7. 2013
13 major version numbers in roughly 17.5 months means, at this pace...
17.5/13 = 1.3462 months release
79 releases until triple digits * 1.3462 months/release = 106 months from May 2013 to version 100 = 8 years, 10 months = March 2022.
Of course, the release rate is generally accelerating and may not be linear, but appears to be approximating Moore's Law, in which case, we may well see it next year kartiksh
