Mozilla Kills Firefox UI For MetroStates lack of interest.

If you’re one of two people who has been dreaming about the touch friendly version of Firefox for Windows 8 then we have some bad news for you. As it turns out, no one is really interested in such version and therefore, Mozilla has announced its plans to abandon the project.

So how bad the situation are we talking about? Well, according to them, “On any given day we have, for instance, millions of people testing pre-release versions of Firefox desktop, but we’ve never seen more than 1,000 active daily users in the Metro environment,”. As a result, such release could be ridden with bugs since there was little to no testing.

And here you have it, folks.
