The Release Notes link in that post is the changelog, which was already there.

Progressively more difficult ...

I notice that it has become progressively more difficult to find out that info.

You used to get taken straight to that page when you got an update.
Then they hid the link at the bottom of the page.
Then they made you select "Release Notes" from the "Help" menu.
Now I (and my friend) couldn't find any way to get to that info.

At this rate, by the end of the year, there won't be any info at all.

I have noticed a disturbing increase in the amount of glitz, at the expense of functionality.
The Add-ons page used to be plain, but effective.

I've also noticed they make it almost impossible to find the release notes link anymore, like you used to easily be able to on the main Mozilla Firefox page. One would think it should be there right under the Download button, but...

Upgrade offer boosts Firefox 4 share by 30%

Mozilla coordinator boasts 'IE9 will never catch up'

By Gregg Keizer

Computerworld - Firefox 4's share shot up 11% the first day after Mozilla started offering users the upgrade last week, and climbed 30% in four days.

The boost moved a long-time Mozilla employee to compare the gains of Firefox and Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) since the two browsers debuted last March.

"IE9 will never catch up to Firefox," said Asa Dotzler, Mozilla's community coordinator for Firefox marketing, on his personal blog. "It will be a year or two before [Microsoft] can move the bulk of their IE7 and IE8 users forward."

According to Irish Web metrics company StatCounter, Firefox 4 usage share jumped from 10.3% to 11.4% on the day after Mozilla began asking existing users if they wanted to upgrade to the new edition. The 1.1-point gain represented an 11% increase.

By Monday, Firefox 4 accounted for 13.2% of all browsers, a 30% increase from the previous Thursday.

IE9's progress has been slower: In the first four days after Microsoft turned on the Windows Update upgrade April 18, IE9's share climbed by 20%. Since then the browser has gradually grown its share, breaking the 4% mark for the first time last weekend.

Microsoft and Mozilla have been skirmishing over browser share since the former launched IE9 March 14 and the later released Firefox 4 on March 22.

After Mozilla boasted of the early download tallies of Firefox 4 -- 7.1 million the first day, 8.8 million the next day -- Microsoft argued that the comparisons between the browsers were "premature at best, and misleading at worst" because IE9 had yet to hit Windows Update.

Microsoft has said that all IE7 and IE8 users on Windows Vista and Windows 7 will have seen the upgrade offer by the end of June.

It shouldn't surprise anyone that Firefox 4 has a much larger share than IE9, even if Mozilla turned on its upgrade offer two weeks after Microsoft. Unlike IE9, which runs only on Windows Vista and Windows 7, Firefox also works on Windows XP, Mac and Linux.
