At Mozilla the trains run on time. The open source
group is out with its second rapid release browser today, providing
users with improved functionality and performance.
Firefox 6, which is being officially released by Mozilla today,
follows Firefox 5, which debuted in July. Both Firefox 5 and 6 are
part of Mozilla's new rapid release cycle, which aims to deliver
more browser updates with incremental features. Previously Mozilla
had released major browser update on a less predictable cycle with
long with development cycles of a year or longer in between
While the new rapid release cycle does not present the same
volume of new features as the longer release cycles, Mozilla is
confident that the process is working.
