Firefox 10 Makes Add-ons Compatible by Default

Firefox has beaten Internet Explorer to the coveted version 10.  Is anyone really paying attention?  Not really.  Firefox switched their update numbering scheme which is why their version numbers keep climbing so rapidly.  They adopted a more Chrome-like system of dropping support for older versions which is why you get fewer 8.1.4.5 type versions.
