Download Firefox 24 BetaEvolution, not revolution.

As if Android release wasn’t enough, Mozilla has also pushed the Beta version of Firefox 24 for the PCs. However, despite sharing the same version number, these two releases are far from identical, in fact, it’s quite the opposite.

Also, at least for now it’s Windows only, with Mac and Linux versions coming later.
