Mozilla has announced that the final versions of Firefox 4 won’t be out until early next year instead of next month as originally planned—while Google Chrome is releasing new versions faster and faster, with lots of new features.
The Mozilla people commented on the delays:
“Based on the delays in completing the feature complete Beta 7 milestone against which our Add-on developers and third-party software developers can develop, as well as considering the amount of work remaining to prepare Firefox 4 for final release, we have revised our beta and release candidate schedule”
Meanwhile, Google just released version 7 of Chrome only about 7 weeks after they released Chrome 6, and they will probably have Chrome 8 out by the end of the year. Sure seems like Google’s incremental development model is working better.
