To be honest, they're getting enough publicity as it is.

I still remember the day I switched from IE/Maxthon to FF3. It was a revelation - speed, addons and customisation.

Now it feels sluggish compared to chrome, IE9 even. Getting addons to work with each new version. Customisation, now that I made it just the way I like it, there is nothing to customise, lol!

What exactly is the point of version numbers anyway? I'm not really for or against this, but I'm wondering why others are so against this.

Maybe they should try Roman Numerals for version numbers that would really confuse people

Nightly ixai instead of 9.0a1

It worked for Hollywood! Before I can figure out the Ms Vs Ls and Xs on those old black and white films it shifts to the next screen of credits. Unless it's an easy one like MCML.

Klaw, nobody will lift an eyelid if the new versions every minute did not break addons, look at chrome. Isn't addons the main selling point of firefox? Mozilla has done a fine job at alienating the community, blaming bitching users and lazy addon developers. Moving to accelerated release cycle did not actually help.

It will be difficult to know when to update the software if the version number isn't showing.

I used to be a big fan of Firefox, but with subsequent releases it seemed to get slower and more bloated.
My first choice is Google Chrome, and I use IE9, Opera, FF5 and Safari to test web design.

My feelings of Mozilla's decision are best summed up by this image:
