A large part of the purpose of a Firefox beta is to gather feedback on new features. If new features can't be gradually rolled out in betas, then when can they be?

*RC*s should be stable, with no new features. "Beta" just means "it's still being worked on, but you can out this fairly stable version".

"£400 million ($668 million) will be spend on installing and monitoring CCTV cameras in the homes of private citizens. Why? To make sure the kids are doing their homework, going to bed early and eating their vegetables. The scheme has, astonishingly, already been running in 2,000 family homes. The government’s “children’s secretary” Ed Balls is behind the plan, which is aimed at problem, antisocial families. The idea is that, if a child has a more stable home life, he or she will be less likely to stray into crime and drugs."
