What's with all the constant updates?

Is it just me, but does it seem like there is an firefox update all the time..I mean very very regularly?

It makes you wonder how many security holes are in firefox for them to have to keep updating it so often!

Not Security

The new rapid release cycle means a new major version of firefox (6.0, 7.0, etc) every 3 months. And they're working on getting that down to 6 weeks. So new features will keep coming out. Security updates aren't happening any more often than usual and are on par with other browsers like Chrome. Why do you always assume the worst about these things?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I hope you understand that people are different to you John and from each other. Not everyone views the world the same.

And also,

Why do you ask us about it rather than Mozilla? As we've said before on numerous things, we don't make the base software; we just make the portable version.

General observation

I was making a general observation: you keep on asking us questions about things that we are nothing to do with.

The reason was Chris that I thought I would post it here rather than find a Firefox forum and have to register and then post it there Smile
