Metro-style Firefox for Windows 8 to arrive on December 10

The notes from a recent Mozilla meeting reveal that a touch-friendly, Metro-style version of Firefox for Windows 8 will arrive alongside Firefox 26 in December. Firefox 26 for Windows 8 is set to release on Dec. 10, and it sounds like the “Modern UI” version will arrive at the same time.
The notes, published online by Mozilla, called the special Windows 8-friendly version of the Firefox browser the “Metro Preview Release build” and promise that it will “‘ride the trains’ for Firefox 26.” Mozilla plans to continue working on the Modern/Metro Firefox, killing bugs and streamlining the browser, right up until its release.
Firefox for Windows 8 will include a new Metro style Start Page, support for Firefox Sync, Metro touch and swipe gestures, integration with Windows 8 “charms”, and a new interface.
A Metro-friendly version of Firefox has been in the works at Mozilla for a while, with previews appearing as far back as last year. Nevertheless, a version of Firefox designed with touch in mind will benefit plenty of Windows 8 users. Alongside, Mozilla has plenty else going on, with an ”aggressive” release schedule planned for Firefox Mobile.
For now, Firefox for Windows 8 will not work on Windows RT and will require Windows 8.
