Download Firefox 24 Final For PC & AndroidReleasing two versions at once, Mozilla has recently revealed the final bits of Firefox 24 for both PC and Android.

Looking at the changelog, Firefox 24 appears to be mostly focused towards the mobile users, at least in terms of added functionality. When it comes to Android branch, you can expect WebRTC support, tab sharing between users using NFC and a Night mode in Reader.

    Close tabs to the right, a feature I already had in other browsers and never ever used, nor intend to do in any future.
