I never said they didn't, I got tired of the sluggishness mostly, and the addon issues as well.
Because Chrome doesn't change their version number very often
Stupidest reason ever.

Firefox is my backup browser, so it's installed on all the computers I use. It's even my primary browser on my work laptop. I tried the latest release on mobile. What used to be a good product back in the day is just a subpar product, and the mobile version was NEVER good. It has always run slow on my Incredible, and it was slow on my Galaxy Nexus.
Use latest firefox on desktop and on android , for once , to see how they have improved.

I feel same for Chrome. When it came it was all fast and lightweight. Now it has inbuilt flash , pdf viewer , translator. Installing some other softwares ends up them adding their own toolbars to Chrome , just like IE6 times, Adding addons and opening more than say 5 tabs makes it take hell lot of ram often leading to crashes and feels fragile to use.

Agreed 100%. I use Aurora/Nightly channels most of the time and having daily updates is nice, but I would really like silent updates without the UAC popup asking whether to restart. Seriously, if you can program it to download the update without asking, then why not just sit back and wait until I restart the browser to install without even prompting. Not a hard concept to understand, Mozilla. Nonetheless, it's the addons that are keeping me hooked on Firefox, otherwise I'd have ditched back to chrome much sooner.
Rapid release is superior IMO, but mozilla should have implemented silent updates and addressed extension compatibility issues before switching to the new cycle. If they had done so the new cycle wouldn't have gotten the poor reception that is has.

Then apparently you don't know what you're talking about. The built in PDF viewer doesn't slow Chrome down at all because *pause for gasp* those modules are only loaded when they're actually needed. Nor does other software add toolbars to chrome, you cannot in fact add toolbars to chrome, you can only install extensions. I can open 30+ tabs in Chrome and it doesn't slow down one bit, and as with all browsers with tab process isolation, it's very rare for tab crashes to hang the main thread. All browsers with TPI use more memory, it's a price you pay for extra stability and security. I've been using Chrome for 3 years and I've only seen a couple of occasions on which a crashed tab has caused the main thread to also crash.

I don't hate Firefox updates - I just hate Firefox.
Ditched it for Chrome ages ago and never looked back.
