    I don't see any mention of TLS 1.2? Is it undocumented?

    you know I gotta agree that Chrome is still faster even with the same addons/extensions installed over firefox, I have been long tempted to go back to Chrome.

    But I stick wtih Firefox since it has that option to not store history, no websites, cache etc. Yeah I can set shortcuts to chrome for privacy mode but its not quite the same, + chrome browser is part of google so its NSAed/Policed already !

    Changelog has been updated:
    https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/24.0/releasenotes/

    Keep in mind that there may not be one, both v21 and 22 didn't have a minor update.

    Yes, probably because it's still disabled by default..

    I think Prism said it best

    "Why are privacy- and security-enhancing addons for proprietary browsers (chrome) not listed?
    Because the improvements they may achieve can not be significant in the context of their untrustworthy host browser. Switching to a free, open-source browser like Firefox achieves better improvements"

    Chromes Proprietary while firefox is open source :)

    I think opera should be a good alternative to chrome. Will try once it hits 20 land mark :D

    But my primary browser still remains Firefox. Going very strong. No issues at all.
    Except Flash video playing at normal window size..

    Updated. When playing videos at youtube adobe flash player plug-in icon appears beside the globe icon in the address bar. Clicking on it says 'adobe flash player is enabled for this site......deny.....allow'. Never happened before.

    New feature in this FF version?
