Download Firefox 23 Final With new logo and more.

Now here’s something for all the Firefox users out there, a new final release of Firefox from Mozilla.

As reported earlier, Firefox 23 is the first stable build that includes a new logo, which was designed to look crisp and clean even on a smaller screen devices. That’s not the only change though, people that care about security will be happy to know that the non-secure content (HTTP) on a secure web site (HTTPS) will now be blocked by default, which should stop eavesdropping.

In addition to that, Firefox 23 features a share button (see screenshot below) and includes some of the “user friendly” improvements like the removal of “Enable JavaScript” option, which was hinted for quite some time. Those are not the only changes though, here are Firefox 23 release notes:
