"Mozilla faced its fair share of criticism this year when they
moved to the rapid release cycle. Enterprises argued that they
couldn't update as fast as Firefox is being released, with new
browsers out every six weeks.
As it turns out, Linux vendor Red Hat isn't updating with every
Firefox release either.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is the industry leader for Linux
at this point and they're taking a different approach to updating
Firefox. I recently spoke with Tim Burke, Vice-President of Linux
Engineering at Red Hat about the Firefox issue.
