Lance - this is not really an on-topic question for here, as it comes down to "whenever the browser developers implement it" so this may get closed by the community.

In saying that, a quick google shows that some already have it enabled. the ISC Diary had this in September:

The TLS support for browsers right now is:

  • IE9 TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 all supported via Schannel
  • IE8 TLS 1.0 supported by default, 1.1 and 1.2 can be configured
  • Opera - 10.x supports TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2

I don't count older versions of any of these browsers, since people really should have auto-update on. if they don't they've probably got bigger problems ( http://isc.sans.edu/diary.html?storyid=11527 )

  • Mozilla/Firefox - TLS 1.0 only
  • Chrome - TLS 1.0 only (though an update is rumoured)
  • Safari - TLS 1.0
  • Cell phones - various support levels (webkit has tls 1.2 since Nov 2010, but for individual phone browser implementations your mileage may vary)
