    They're using bigger number jumps is all.

    Instead of 4.01a 4.01b etc they're going from 4 to 4.5 to 5 or something.

    Thanks to Chrome's lame idea of code freeze(e.g. freeze after adding a new button).

    but FF4 is hella slow :banghead:so i decide to move to 5, the 5 version so far run pretty well

    Chrome is always slow when you saving many pictures and one thats kinda sad is the installer is growing and growing, if Chrome could install flash player separated it would be better :toast:

    I think that what pr0n Inspector meant was a stopping point in development for the software. Like: "Ho guys, this is it for this version. No more coding and tweaking until we start making the next version".

    I read something about a new tracking prevention feature, but you're probably right, although I do expect other improvements to warrant the use of 5.0 rather than 4.X.

    Firefox 4 accepts much more plug-ins
    The firefox 5 is still beta and it cannot be the release of it for a lot of time
