While Firefox 24 for desktop intros a new “Close tabs to the right” feature, Firefox 24 for Android lets NFC-enabled phones share open tabs.

Mozilla rolled out Firefox 24 to Windows, OS X, and Linux users around the world. This latest release comes with a cool new feature that makes it easier to close tabs, a feature called “Close tabs to the right.”


Say you’re on the FindMySoft News page and you middle click on several articles. All those articles will be opened in a new tab, to the right of the original FindMySoft News tab. Once you’re done reading all the news, you can very easily close them all by using the “Close tabs to the right” feature offered by Firefox 24. Just right click the FindMySoft News tab, select “Close tabs to the right” option, and the tabs with the news you read will be closed.

Firefox 24 has a couple of other new features to offer:
  • Support for new scrollbar style in Mac OS X 10.7 and newer.
  • Ability to tear-off chat windows to view separately by simply dragging them out.

In related news, it must be mentioned that Mozilla also rolled out Firefox 24 for Android. This updated version of the mobile version comes with several new features. Here are the ones I found to be most interesting:
  • Support for WebRTC has been enabled. WebRTC is the standard for real time communication on the web. WebRTC enables video calls and file-sharing directly in the browser, all without the need for plug-ins or third-party software.
  • Open tabs can be shared via NFC.
  • The Main Menu provides easy access to your favorite share app.

You can get the app for free from the Play Store here.

In further related news, Opera rolled out Opera 16 for Android. This latest release comes with a new "Instant back" feature, improved NFC communication, and more. Read more about this topic here.
