Submission + - Mozilla to remove Firefox version numbers ( 3

MrSeb writes: "A great collective gasp issued from tuned-in Firefox fans when Mozilla announced that it was switching to a Chrome-like release schedule for its browser. Now Mozilla wants to take things one step further and remove Firefox version numbers entirely — from the user-facing parts of the browser, anyway."

Mozilla to remove Firefox version numbers

Comments Filter:
  • Good. If you're going to switch to a Chrome-like crazy release schedule, then interrupting the user every other week is incredibly stupid.

    They should have done this first, before abusing the version numbers.

  • It's becoming harder and harder to take Mozilla seriously these days. Who are these changes actually supposed to benefit? I don't see how including a piece of information is harmful to anyone. Between the version numbers BS and UI regressions, I'm switching to another browser once 3.6 is EOL'd.
