Firefox 5 Officially Released; Download it Here!

Did it just feel like yesterday that you upgraded from Firefox 3 to Firefox 4? It really wasn't all that long ago, as Firefox 4.0 hit on March 22, 2011. Now just three months later, Firefox 5.0 is set to hit.

The official launch date of the new Firefox is June 21 – the longest day – but Mozilla has already released it to its FTP in final version form. Grab the latest Firefox 5.0 download for the platform of your choice in the links below:

    Firefox 5, 6, and 7 are just minor changes. Instead of releasing it as Firefox 4.1, .2, and .3 they up the version number to appeal to the stupid majority, since they see Firefox as immature compared to IE 9 and Chrome 13
