Both Firefox 5 and 6 are part of Mozilla's new rapid release cycle, which aims to deliver more browser updates with incremental features.

If they have "incremental features" then why jump whole version numbers? I'm still running Firefox 3.6 so I've missed two "major" versions already.

That's what I was thinking. Seems they are being taken over my marketing driods... "Got to have a major revision number update! That gives the users the impression there are big new things..." While delivering only incremental changes?

The difference between 3 and 4 is huge, and so is the difference between 4 and 5. I’d suggest upgrading.

But from 5 on, what would have been a dot release gets a whole number version change. You’re not likely to see any serious differences for a few versions now.
