Promises seamless Metro integration.
As you might know, Windows 8 will expand Microsoft’s Metro UI, which is currently utilized by Windows Phone, Xbox Dashboard and other software giant products.
Trying to jump ahead everyone but Internet Explorer, which will also have a version specific for the Metro user interface, Mozilla has revealed its plans to create a “Firefox on Metro” for the upcoming Windows 8 OS.
What so special about it?
Just like all Metro apps, Firefox on Metro will focus on a full screen and touch optimized experience.
In addition to that, it will support 3 different snap states, a full screen, ~1/6th screen and ~5/6th screen, which is up for the user to decide.
As for the UI itself, Mozilla is yet to decide whether it will use XUL, C/C++ or HTML/CSS and JS.
Whether or not other browsers will follow, remains to be seen.
