Mad respect to the contributors and developers of Firefox. I've been loving the updates lately. Firefox has become my browser of choice again :)

It's quite amazing really. FF is a really big project with a complex highly-layered codebase that has to work on a lot of very different platforms (and not just the most recent versions either); changes that might seem simple in the abstract can be very difficult to make in practice. And yet despite this, recently it seems like they're just flying: not only are releases more frequent, but each release seems to contain significant improvements, both in functionality and speed/robustness.

How exactly they manage to pull this off I don't know, but mad props seem apropos... :]
