Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has released Firefox 7. Unlike releases of Firefox 5 and Firefox 6 which were relatively minor upgrades to the browser, Firefox 7 includes a number of significant improvements, most important of which is probably the drastically reduced memory usage.

I think Mozilla should have done a year.release version scheme (e.g. 2011.01 for the first release of the year and so on - gives them 99 releases [which could include alphas and betas inbetween stable releases] a year, which should be more than enough). That way, no-one would moan about the major version changing because that would only happen at least 12 months apart!

But that means that they would go from 7 to 2011. Inflation of almost 3000%!
