Firefox 24 Is Now Available

Mozilla released Firefox v24 today, the latest version of their Firefox browser.

While there aren’t a lot of changes from Firefox v23 to v24, at least not in the desktop version, there is a really handy new feature called “Close Tabs to the Right” that you may end up using on a regular basis, assuming you’re a Firefox power user like I am.

 

 

You can download Firefox v24
