Yeah.. would have been cooler to keep the number increment only for major updates ( as they did until now )

There was like dozens of 3.x version and just one 4.x something like:

3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6… 3.66, 4.0, 4.01, 5

“The new release looks and runs very similar to Firefox 4”?!? Damn it, I hate Firefox 4, it’s a nightmare! :(

I stopped using Firefox when it started eating my CPU resources and cluttering memory slowing down my entire system when I did not turn my Mac off for some days but only going in standby modus (same with Thunderbird). Seems like developers created a software architecture that is not able to stand long runtimes.

I recently switched to Chrome and everything is fine even when my Mac is running for weeks without a shutdown.

Sticking to Chrome for now. The “5” is more of a “4.1”.

Same story here as well. Used to love Firefox but even with just 2 plug-ins, it got so slow and bloated and unusable that I switched to Chrome and never looked back.
