Mozilla releases Firefox Metro Preview for Windows 8

Microsoft’s new OS is just a couple of weeks away and Mozilla has released a preview of its Windows-8 optimized web browser called the Firefox Metro.


The Firefox Metro browser runs in both the Windows 8 “classic Desktop” environment and in the new “Metro” environment. According to Mozilla’s blog, “the preview includes a new Metro style Firefox Start page, support for Firefox Sync, Metro touch and swipe gestures, integration with Windows 8 “charms”, and a simple but powerful Australis interface that is streamlined, modern, and beautiful.”

If you want to try the Firefox Metro Preview you can download the installer here. Once installed, the build is able to self update so you can keep track on the Firefox Metro development.
