Mozilla Rolls Out Firefox For Windows 8

Mozilla is said to have introduced the most recent nightly build of Firefox for Windows, and when done on a computer that is powered by Windows 8, you will find that you can then launch the spanking new “Metro” style Firefox app from the Windows Start Screen itself. Of course, bear in mind that you are not supposed to download Firefox Metro from the store itself, but the nightly build instead. Not all the steps are dummy proof though, as to gain access to Firefox Metro, you have your work cut out for you. First, you will need to set Firefox as your default web browser, followed by tapping the “Nightly” icon to roll out the classic Firefox version, or if you prefer, choose the “Nightly” icon from the Start Screen itself – it works either way.

Initial impressions of the new Metro-style app seem to indicate that it has been heavily inspired by the Firefox mobile browser on the Android platform, featuring a generous search/address bar that is located at the top of the screen, in addition to a plus icon to the right which allows you to fire up a new browser tab.
