Firefox rapid release cycle might improve security

Firefox's release cycle remains divisive but could be a boon, according to a software testing company.

Firefox's rapid release schedule – with a new version appearing a mere six weeks after the previous one – has proved divisive. In a previous .net report, developer Mike Woloszynowicz argued the version numbers were now just a marketing tool, and Aaron Gustafson worried that the cycle could confuse users, although he noted that it's a boon for developers, through faster adoption of standards support.
