thanks for the update but i am waiting for Firefox 7 to be final as ill stick with Aurora channel for now as Firefox 7's memory usage is hugely improved which means prior versions are obsolete/not worth using.

i been using Firefox 7 for over a month now and i won't go back to to big memory improvements over prior versions.

Mine updated before I went to bed a few hours ago. Just after midnight EST.

Feels fast and snappy. A wholly change from the last beta.

Ha - if it wasn't for Google's lame versioning strategy, FF 6 would - and should - have been 4.2. :rolleyes:

i agree as it's been ages like that up until recently. because full version number changes used to mean fairly big leaps. now you just get small differences between FF4 to FF6. FF7 is where the big leap is at anyways due to the very noticeable ram use reduction.

because with the usual version numbering it would have basically been like this...

Firefox 4

Firefox 4.1 (i.e. Firefox 5)

Firefox 4.2 (i.e. Firefox 6)

Firefox 5 (i.e. Firefox 7 (since the very noticeable ram reduction would be a major boost to the browser))

I'm going to sleep now. Wake me up when people stop complaining about this and just be happy that they are actually releasing updates faster.

firefox 6 is a nice improvement, mainly in HTML5 capabilities, the other changes are rather minor. Not long until Firefox 7 beta, need the ram improvements badly, i hate firefox increasing in ram over several hours, supposedly firefox 7 will pretty much fix this.

I must have totally missed FireFox 5 haha, I was sure the latest was version 4.

Google don't make any deal what so ever about what version the browser is, so it shouldn't matter.

They should have stick to the same version cycles.

I hate this. You add 1 small feature and you claim it another version. WTF.

Fx7 will enter Beta on 16th, so only a few more days of waiting.

I was pretty happy with it when Aurora went to v6, although to be honest, much happier with v7. If you don't like pre-releases though, yea it's a good upgrade from v5.

I might try v7 just for the sake of it, if version 6 still having memory issues I rather try whats next. Thanks :)

Not sure about v4.2, but maybe everything between v5 and v6 would have been a 4.5 release.

Must this happen every time?

It's not really final until it's actually announced as a release. Then all the pages are up to date, and the build will have been fully tested and approved. So, use at your own risk, but why do we have to have a thread jumping the gun every time?

And, they're doing time-based releases, hence the version increment each time (because 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 forever would be silly). Just ignore the bloody version number.

True. Yeah, this new versioning, like Chrome's versioning, is a bit misleading and artificial, but I'm glad they are rolling out improvements much more quickly instead of getting bogged down. Getting to 4.0 took way too long.

Aurora 7, simply, is the best browser I have ever used as far as responsiveness and looks. The font rendering is superb. Though, was that introduced in v6?

More than likely trying to keep up with rival browsers versions.

IE9

Opera 11

Chrome 13

FF4... Sounds pretty far behind the rest

Again, this isn't actually properly released yet. Beta users are being updated to this build, not everyone else.

Chrome doesn't advertise its version number anywhere. Chrome isn't trying to beat anyone's version number, and no one is trying to catch up to chrome's. Firefox isn't adopting a chrome style release cycle because of a damn version number, they are doing it for faster, consistent releases that get improvements to the end user faster, rather than the previous monolithic releases that let the current version get stale and behind (*cough firefox 3.6 cough*).

Unless you mean on their download page, then no they don't - but chill... no need for swearing about a browser !
