I have no idea why people are so fascinated with what version number they use but it is totally unimportant, they are also implementing background updating so it will soon be a moot point.

Despite having it explained numerous times?

There's nothing inherently wrong with doing it the way they are doing it, other than the fact it's against expectations. The public is used to version numbers being for "major" releases, not just a new feature or two. That's the way it's been for most software for quite some time now. So when people see a program coming out with "major" number changes for almost every release, it makes it look like they are just rushing out versions for the sake of rushing out versions. Trying to play "number catch-up" with the other browsers.

If the industry has a de-facto standard, which it does, then making use of that standard makes sense. Flaunting that standard does not, unless you have a really compelling reason to do so. Where is the compelling reason? Matching what Chrome is doing isn't it.

The new development model along with the new versioning system has produced a much better browser in a modest period of time, something that their old approach couldn't do any longer.

The versioning system had nothing to do with it. The versioning system doesn't control release schedule or features. They could have released the exact versions that they've put out over the last year with a saner versioning system.
