How many versions can they release in a year?!
Trying to catch up with Chrome on the numbering scheme
Time to find out if they've fixed any auth bugs...
I'm just going to wait till Firefox 19 next week
Another version? Maybe they are realising the last two were just as bad as IE. Even some of our staff here are saying its too slow compared to chrome.
Mozilla fall foul of e-peen boasting again... it's only a bloody number, I don't care how big it is!

Since Windows 7, my love for Firefox isn't as great anymore. I'm quite happy with IE9 to be honest!
Trying to keep up in a networked environment just isn't very practical! For home use it's OK.

It's about time they did something like this. I'm pretty sure Firefox's browser share would be a lot larger than it is now if they made it easier to deploy in the first place. Although it was fun initially creating a version of Firefox 3.6 that could be deployed, it became a chore having to repeat the process for each build or version.
I know Google have done this with Chrome, as well as including ADM files to tweak the browser.
This is where IE9 is still very strong as you can tweak it to the max and at least you know it'll be around for a few years! Microsoft have also learnt lessons not to create web standards, but adhere to what's already out there.
Firefox has gone for the agile method, so more frequent builds per year.
IE is awful for continuous updates, it must need a new fix or similar twice a week, and after you've patched your 1000th "Patch" in a year the browser you started with is nothing like what you've got now.
So the only real difference is Firefox likes to make visual improvements more frequently, and as such increase the release number more rapidly, instead of having Version 184.108.40.206.4.2 rc32 SP12
I like the fact that you don't have to install six million "security updates for Mozilla Firefox", it just updates the core program, so you've got one nice up to date package.
Even installing IE8 on a PC here would require an age downloading the updates through Win Update. I could just download the latest Firefox and be done.
Although I must admit ... version 7? I've been using version 9 for months
