@Red_Machine: agreed. Google Chrome's version number race is annoying, as there's barely any functional and cosmetic difference between them, even if there is under the hood.

The new numbering scheme is idiotic and a complete nightmare from a tech support perspective. Does anyone happen to remember what was new in Chrome version 7 ? Where i can tell you easily what was going on for each and every Firefox release so far. Because it made sense. Smaller version number bumps also meant smaller changes to the program. But they were saying like version numbers are constraining them. Bollocks. They were just lazy. If they'd add significant enough changes they could easily justify the larger version number more often. But now they'll release small updates and release big numbers. For what? To measure who's gentlemen sausage is bigger?
I just hope Opera won't follow this stupid route as their version numbering makes the most sense for now. Jumps by 0.1 are for hotfixes, jumps for 0.50 are for larger changes and whole number changes are for complete overhaul and a bigger step forward. Easy to follow and it just makes sense. Like it did for Firefox before version 4.0...
