Mozilla refuses to develop “Metro” Firefox for Windows 8
If Firefox is your favorite browser and hope to see a stable “Metro” version of its Windows 8 or 8.1 device, I have to disappoint you. Mozilla recently announced that stopped developing alternative interface as finds it too complicated and expensive.
Jonathan Naytingel, Vice President of Firefox, said that the beta version of the modern interface is used by very few users – no more than 1000 a day. We recall that back in 2012 Mozilla publishes experimental Metro interface for Firefox, which does not work particularly well and currently is not a complete substitute modern version of Internet Explorer. If you do not like the browser on Microsoft, a good alternative remained Chrome, which recently passed a version of Metro.
Unfortunately, more and more companies refuse to develop “Metro” versions of their applications, especially considering that Microsoft leaves interface more background.
