Didn't we just get Firefox 4 a little bit ago?

Mozilla is borrowing a page from Google Chrome and speeding up the development cycle for Firefox releases, setting new iterations of the browser for fixed time periods and bulldozing over features that just aren't ready to make it into a new browser release.

And if Mozilla sticks by its newly proposed plan, that means that we'll be seeing Firefox 5 on June 21 -- following a shortened 13-week development cycle instead of the proposed 18-week cycle for all future Firefox builds....
