[quote=888] [quote=4td8s] well firefox 5 beta will be offered in mozilla's beta channel on may 17 and the final release of [url=https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases]firefox 5[/url] is scheduled to come out on june 21. i'm [b]not[/b] joking on either one of those. and soon, seamonkey will start following mozilla's rapid release process as well. read this recent blog here: [url=http://home.kairo.at/blog/2011-05/weekly_status_report_w17_2011]http://home.kairo.at/blog/2011-05/weekly_status_report_w17_2011[/url] [quote]Also, it more and more looks as if SeaMonkey will chime in with the rapid release process and produce small but fast updates in the future, which also should get exciting.[/quote][/quote] For long time I've been using firefox betas (before its 1.0 first official rel) because it was lean, fast, and had no useless junk built-in. But as soon as bloat started to pour-in into this once fine browser, around version 0.6 or 0.72 or 0.9 (been long time, I'm sure I'm confusing FF versions with K-M versions), anyways it was obvious in which direction it will go, and that's when I decided to switch to K-Meleon for good (it also helped that K-M got updated to a very usable browser at that time). Do you see where I'm going with it? I, for instance, couldn't care less if new firefox is released on a weekly basis. All the changes I have seen in all firefox versions are just more bloat, with very seldom truly useful feature that most users would need or desire. That's the reason why I'm still using K-Meleon. The only thing that K-M needs is official gecko updates (which ought to be posted on the main page next to the official downloads, as I always ask for this...). Want bloated browser or need to install newer browser versions every few weeks? Well, there is firefox for that. I don't want it, and I'm sure neither do most of K-Meleon users.[/quote]
