What's in a name? It's actually 6.5-ish, stop worrying about the numbering system.

The only practical importance, except for corporate use, is whether or not your own set of plug-ins remains compatible, and by that measure FF 7 and 8 have been the most trouble-free browser updates ever for me.



It don't matter what number system they use, they don't improve it. i used to love Firefox,but it just got slower and slower with more and more bugs, they seem to be more bothered about what it looks like than how it works.

FF6 was fine and for the past few weeks every day I have had the upgrade to FF7 nag screen appearing. Earlier today, I decided to upgrade to FF7 - I always prefer to wait for any bugs to be sorted. What do I find - I have got FF8 !

Is this the same browser that a few years ago was being proclaimed by many as being far superior to Microsofts' Internet Explorer?

OK, that's what I would have guessed. I have Chrome on my testing PC, but it doesn't work well on my main PC because it does not handle a 120 dpi monitor properly: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=679
IE and FF (with layout.css.devPixelsPerPx set appropriately) are fine in this respect.
