In case you are using a touch based web browser, then we have some good and bad news for you. The good news: Internet Explorer 11 is coming with Windows 8.1 (which is free). The bad news? It looks like Mozilla has postponed the launch of Firefox for Metro UI until late January, 2014.
However, there are more good news at the end of the tunnel. Even though the final Windows 8 version is not coming anytime soon, Firefox 26 will include a “Preview Release”, which should work just fine.
In the recently published notes, Mozilla said that, “The goal of the Metro Preview Release is to gather feedback and defects from the larger Aurora community. Whether or not the Metro Preview Release will graduate from Aurora to Beta and Release channels is still to be determined. At a minimum, it should significantly increase the number of testers and feedback.”
So why was it delayed in the first place? It was a result of slower development pace, that is all.
