Earlier today, Mozilla upgraded their Internet browser by launching Firefox 5. According to Mozilla, Firefox 5 is packed with more than 1000 different improvements which will make surfing on Firefox even better and faster. Firefox 5 will also include the much awaited Do Not Track feature which will allow users to stop websites/applications from tracking them.
But not everybody agrees to Mozilla’s claim. Mr Vaughn-Nichols, on his blog states, “I’ve played with the beta and few hours I’ve been working with the final version, I have to say that what I find most annoying about Firefox – its lack of stability, especially on Linux, and continued hunger for memory – doesn’t seem to be improved much, if any. Put it all together, though, is this enough to call this version of Firefox a major new release? No. It’s not even close.”
Maybe Mozilla is trying to pull a marketing gimmick here by launching a usual update and naming it as the Firefox 5. Mozilla have learnt by now that launching new versions every now and then will keep them in the loop, just like Apple and Google do with their products.
So it might be possible that in order to be in news again, Mozilla have launched Firefox 5 internet browser without much changes.
