Re: [opensuse] What the reason behind the Mozilla "version race"?

Guys, Lew,

Does anybody have any understanding about why Mozilla sees fit to race
forward with version numbers on what seems like an every other month
pace? We enjoyed firefox/tbird version 2.x-3.x for what seems like
years, yet we have raced from 3.x - 14.x in the blink of an eye.

Anybody know why? I understand how version numbers work, major/minor
milestones, build numbers, etc.., but I'm just curious if anyone has the
scoop on why we've jumped from 3-14 in such a short period of time -
relatively speaking.

Version numbers are meaningless on the current state of affairs in
software development. they are no more than marketing tool now.

This is not exclusive to FF/chrome though.
