[TheRegister] FireFox 5 (beta) Launched, Mozilla adopting Chrome style release.

post #1 of 18

Quote:
In an effort to make the upgrade process appear more seamless for its users, Mozilla has adopted a release schedule similar to that of Google, which places a bigger emphasis on the actual development stage of the browser, rather than allowing coders to feel encumbered by version numbers.
Le Source: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/05/23/firefox_5_beta/

Features: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox.../releasenotes/

Seems like it was already released but didn't see mention the Chrome style release schedule.

I don't know what you are referring too with the tabbing into searches but with FF4 you can use the address bar as google search.

I have been using FF5 since the Beta release and I love it. Much faster and I love the chromy look. You can still use the address bar as an insta-search like chrome.

I just went to their homepage and was offended by this Apple related bogus.

Rockin' FF6 aka Aurora since it was unleashed. Lovin' it. Yes, I do have to make some sacrifices as far as add-ons go, but if I really cared for those certain ones that aren't supported I could always force support.

I honestly don't understand the fuss over speed. It's a short amount of time. And it's not like FF6/5 aren't already OMG FAST (FF6 in particular).

...you already can.

I have an old crapbox. Between Chrome, FF and Opera, i'll choose FF 100% of the time.

Opera all the way since the first time I saw it 4 years ago. There you can use any search engine as default from your address bar, not just google (yahoo, bing, wolfram alpha, etc). Plus I love my 7x4 speed dial grid... Now that I think of it, 28 items aren't not enough, I think I'll bump it up to 8x6...

You can have a Speed Dial with FF aswell via Addon. I do miss Opera but my ISP (Satellite) don't work so hot with it
