Mozilla & Gecko clones A remarkably well reasoned editorial by Peter Bright at Ars discusses the implications of the new Firefox release schedule. The Crux of the argument is that by complaining about the "new" Firefox release, corporate customers are fundamentally misunderstanding the web and their place in it. He also reflects on historical reasons for their attitude and what they should do in the future to maintain parity with the evolution of the web.

eldarion,

"Like what? Really, if the extensions don't follow firefox update speed, you should not blame Firefox. Maybe you made some poor extension choices?"

Wow, I can't believe what I'm hearing.

I've personally seen FF updates break extensions, it's very frustrating. According to you we should blame the extension author, but not every 3rd party developer has the resources to keep up with mozilla's betas, I know I wouldn't. Doesn't mozilla deserve more of them blame since it was they who caused things to break?
