RE: Firefox Beta 5

There's going to be a kind of .1 release in July, which will include Firefox 3 final.

They're explicitely advising LTS users to wait till July, while users that want the latest version can happily install now.

It does make far more sense than trying to keep with Firefox 2 for the next 3 years, especially considering that - at least on my desktop - Firefox 2.0 in Gutsy has proved far from stable (it's not really Mozilla's fault since it works ok on other distros/OS).

If you stop a minute and consider that businesses always wait for an SP1 before any migration, July's release is going to fit perfectly in the LTS scheme.
