5Firefox 24 Beta Closes Tabs to the Right
Mozilla currently has Firefox 24 available as a preview in its Beta channel. The new release includes the ability for users to “Close Tabs to the Right.” Jared Wein, senior software engineer at Mozilla, wrote in a blog post: “When we open new tabs, they appear on the end, and so naturally tabs that have a longer lifetime end up being promoted to the start-side of the bar. This leads us towards the situation where closing tabs ‘to the right’ is a simple way of closing the ephemeral tabs.”
