2nd! I hope Mozilla will shake thing up with their next release because the road to FF4 was full of gravels instead of paved asphalts.

Bit early surely? Even with the hugely accelerated roadmap.

Technically, isn't Minefield going to go into FF5 once beta is complete? I think it did in the past since RC is basically bug fixes and quality assurance, which leaves the developers to go back to working on implementing features that did not make it into FF4.

Once Firefox 4 is "finished", it'll branch off and the trunk will become Firefox 5 (which should be released about 3 months afterwards if they stick to the new schedule, so in June)

They can't even get an RC out and yet Mozilla is looking at Firefox 4,5 6 and possibly 7 to be completed by the end of 2011.. It has taken 12 months on Firefox 4 and it is not finished yet. Beam me up!

Since people keep claiming Firefox 4 is taking so long, I decided to actually go and look up the time between versions.

1.0 to 1.5: 1 year, 20 days
1.5 to 2.0: 10 months, 25 days
2.0 to 3.0: 1 year, 7 months, 24 days
3.0 to 3.5: 1 year, 13 days
3.5 to 3.6: 6 months, 22 days
3.6 to 4.0 (now): 1 year, 1 month, 9 days

So yeah, the time between 3.6 and 4.0 isn't that bad, and isn't even as long as the time between 2.0 to 3.0.

People said the same things about 3.0 as they're saying about 4.0 (Taking too long, too many beats, irrelevant, etc.). And funnily enough 3.0 was also the release that set the world record for downloads :laugh:
