Not according to Mozilla. For myself, I think it's part user perception marketing for sure but there has been a marked improvement in the browser since they implemented it which is hard to argue with. Was anyone really happy with the slow development and numerous point releases that plagued the 4.x line? It was a nightmare for addon developers and users alike, it also lead to Firefox market share stagnating due to the browser bloating up from them trying to shove too many features into every major release.
