Right, but the point is that you don't want people to stay with the final release versions either, because: 1. They may have security holes. 2. If the user gets a newer, better version he may like it better and not switch to the competition. 3. Speeding standards adoption (i.e. some day CSS3 will be released). If people can be prompted to upgrade their browser then we don't have to wait as long before it is feasible to use the new standard.
