Firefox 6 Next Tuesday?

Filed under
Moz/FF

If they’re aren’t a new batch of bugs discovered between this weekend and Tuesday, the 16th of August, Firefox fans and users alike can expect a new version of the browser to be available.

Current Status

On Track with a few bugs still remaining. No concerns for Tuesday.

Not much obfuscation there, nor is there much to be misunderstood. Considering how blunt Mozilla was about memory degradation–”Leaks are generally more important, as they are more likely to lead to horrible performance.”–taking them at their word does come across as foolhardy.
