Over the past few months Mozilla has been working on a new Windows 8 user interface for its latest Firefox web browser, and now the company has released images and preview that you can try.
The new Windows 8 Firefox browser includes a number of great features including, touch and swipe gesture support, syncs with Firefox on the desktop, supports Windows 8 charms, data sharing between other Metro apps, tab bar with tab previews, keyboard shortcuts, and the ability to view pages in desktop mode.
“Earlier this year, we began development on a version of Firefox that runs on x86 Windows 8. This version of Firefox runs in both the Windows 8 “classic Desktop” environment, and in the new “Metro” environment. We’ve made a lot of progress since that first development update. We’re excited to share it with you and we’re looking forward to your feedback.”
The new Mozilla Firefox Metro styled web browser can be downloaded from the Mozilla website here, and over the coming weeks up to the launch of Windows 8 on October 26th will be updated nightly.
