Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox 1.5 is finally out the door, and Thunderbird 1.5 won't be far behind. The new releases sport some interesting new features, including faster page navigation, redesigned preferences dialogs, a new update system, and much more. Let's take a look at what the Mozilla Foundation has been up in the year since the first major release of Firefox."

>I like firefox, best damn browser out there but its annoying when every release breaks extensions and themes<

that's the point of this release, to make Firefox more modular where it can be updated instead of upgraded.

If it is in fact the 'point of this release'...then this release is a failure.

How so? Making the changes needed *will* break the current extensions. You can't say that it was a failure a day or two into it's life. You can only judge that after a few months when there's been many releases, and things still break every time. However, I have no problems with breaking extensions, so long as they are squishing bugs, and making a better browser. Evetually, things won't break because they're working fine, and don't need any changes. It's kinda how software works.
