Google Finally! Google has released version 4.0 of Chrome for Windows, bringing the much-anticipated extensions framework out of beta and into the stable channel. Currently, more than 1500 extensions are already available. Version 4.0 carries more features than just extensions, though.

Version number is always arbitrary.

Then why do you care if Chrome goes up by 1's instead of 0.1's?

But the point is that from 1.0 to 4.0 in 1.5 years is tooooo marketing.

If by "marketing" you mean "simpler," then I guess so. Since it's all arbitrary, you might as well cut the modesty and estimation and decimals, and just increment by one every time. Let people who care read the release notes if they want to find out "how much" has changed.

If mozilla wanted marketing, they could have called 3.6 4.0.

But they didn't.

... This time. Previously they jumped from 2.0 straight to 3.0, and the plan after 3.7 is to skip to 4.
