    Immersive Firefox

    Do you think we would eventually get Immersive firefox? I don't mean Fennec, but full version of firefox, just skinned for touch operation like IE10.

    Yes, I know that. But my main question is, do you think we will get full firefox with just touch theme or special version like Fennec?

    I am running nightly 10.0a and so far it is touch unaware even though my computer is, and my touchpad is as well

    I'm kinda sure Firefox will come up with it. Otherwise they will be left behind.

    Windows 8 Dev Preview x64

    I'll look forward to it, but it won't be at least for another few Windows 8 versions... I think. It all depends on how successful the immersive IE is, really.

    It'll happen ... once the Beta comes out.

    Fx is developing for Mobile Phones (Smart Phones) already and is poised to make the leap to tablets, and Win8 Immersive aspects, when they deem it appropriate.

    If it works anything like the Immersive IE10, I'd rather they did NOT produce it.
