Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

I typically don't like installing updates through anything other than mozilla's website. Any reason why they have limited that version to 14? Vimperator is not similarly limited.

There was an update to firefox with 15 which totally broke the add-on, and they are not satisfied that the changes made since deserve a new release.

I've never understood that reasoning before, although it seems quite popular. An obvious bug prevents the current version from working with modern software, but there aren't enough "new features" to release an update that would fix the bug. Stuff happens, just release the fix on the official channel.
