In contrast with the long development cycle for
previous Firefox releases, which often resulted in longer lists of
user-facing features that took a long time to deliver, the new
rapid release cycle is about delivering features faster. "Over
time, users will notice that our rapid release development cycle
delivers new features, performance enhancements and security and
stability improvements faster," Nightingale said. "Users won't have
to wait to experience the best the Web has to offer. With every
regular update, users are going to get a faster, more stable, and
richer browsing experience."
The process of moving from a feature-based release cycle to a
time-based cycle has been a major transformation for Mozilla.
