Firefox version fragmentation increasing – is Mozilla in trouble?
November 4th, 2011 by Pingdom
Mozilla’s development pace for Firefox went into overdrive this year, as they adopted a strategy similar to that which Google uses for the Chrome web browser. Mozilla’s new, rapid release schedule for Firefox calls for a new version every six weeks. On Tuesday, November 8, it’s already time for the release of Firefox 8. But there are clouds on the horizon. For every new version of Firefox that Mozilla releases, a fraction of users are for whatever reason not being upgraded. There’s a long tail of older versions starting to form, and over time this may accumulate enough version fragmentation that it could become a real problem.http://royal.pingdom.com/2011/11/04/is-mozilla-in-trouble-with-increased-firefox-version-fragmentation/
