    I think it's worth pointing out that nobody has actually confirmed this, except for a bunch of ifs and maybes.

    Personally, I think this is just a typical example of Mozilla's PR strategy - leak and hint at highly, almost exaggeratedly optimistic plans to keep people excited, and push back release dates and/or cut back announced features later down the road.

    I'll get excited about FF5 after I see FF4... if the last RC is the same as the final version... I'll stick to Chrome.

    Who cares about release version numbers? Another hype.
    Just because Chrome is at version 55 does not mean Firefox has to be, too.
    Version 4 or 40, what difference could it possibly make?

    Well, IMHO it makes a huge difference to all of the users out there judging by version no, i.e. the bigger the no, the better the software. Sadly common POV I'm afraid...

    Yes, but Opera are renown for premature releases. ;)

    If you are specific about which extensions are not working for you, others maybe able to offer some suggestions.

    I read the article but couldn't find where replacing a mountain of firefox addons with alternatives came into it. Are you sure you posted the right link?

    @InternetMeltDown,

    That "Paste & Go" functionality is now by default in FF4.;)
