Firefox 27 Looks to Boost Web Security

Security once again is top of mind for the Firefox browser, and Firefox 27 will be the first browser from Mozilla to include default support for the Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 specification.

TLS 1.2 was first defined in August 2008, offering security enhancements over prior versions of TLS and SSL.
