First alpha release is here.
If you have a Windows 8 tablet or giant Perceptive Pixel display, then your day is just about to get better. After spending almost a year on the project, Mozilla has just announced the availability of the very first nightly Firefox build for Microsoft’s Windows 8 Modern UI or whatever they decide to call it tomorrow.
Unlike Google (which simply ported the desktop version), Mozilla has actually put some effort into its web browser and followed Windows 8 style application guidelines.
However, don’t get your hopes high yet, according to ZDNet’s Ed Bott, the build is far from usable as even the most basic features such as pinch to zoom don’t work in the Metro mode while desktop version has no issues handling your touch input.
