"In an interview at the Mozilla Toronto office, Mike
Belzner, director of Firefox and the person responsible for Firefox
releases, explained what is going on with the Firefox 3.5 release
process and how Mozilla has improved since the 3.0 release last
year. In a nutshell, Mozilla developers are now building better
software faster than ever.
"We managed to develop Firefox 3.5 in 12 months; compare that to
the development cycle on Firefox 3, which was two and a half
years," Beltzner told InternetNews.com. "The amount of improvement
that we've been able to put into the platform and the speed we've
been able to execute as a distributed open source engineering
organization is something we consider to be one of the better
accomplishments of Firefox 3.5.""
