nk497 writes “Firefox 4 will be the last major browser release from Mozilla, as it looks to mimic Chrome’s speedy release schedule — echoing previous statements that Firefox 7 would arrive this year. “What we want to do is get the power into users’ hands more quickly,” said vice president of products Jay Sullivan. “For example, the video tag was shippable in June — we should have shipped it.” That new schedule is also why Firefox 4 has had 12 betas, he said. Mozilla also said future versions of Firefox would feature a stronger “do not follow tool”, as the current one is a “non-technical solution”,” Sullivan said. “All you’re doing is raising your hand and saying ‘I don’t want to be tracked.’ There’s no technical teeth.”"
