Default Re: Firefox 5.0 Final released

This type of development cycle works great for Chrome because of the extension framework. Extensions are somewhat limited, but are rarely broken with updates. Firefox's model is more robust for extensions and relies on a traditional PC/MAC infrastructure with longer development times. I understand that they've standardized the extension network a bit so we won't have as many breaks, but there is so much legacy code out there that these frequent updates are going to be a thorn in our sides for some time to come.
