    Looks pretty bad. But I guess it's not supposed to be looks but rather function but they could have done a little better.

    Looks interesting.
    Thanks for this Kostas7
    I didn't analyze the pics too much but one comment mentioned that the pics aren't representative of Firefox following Win 8 design guidelines -- anyone know anything about this?

    Frankly if all the settings for all the apps were to stay in the charms settings dialog I'd be one happy user.

    There's a very early working version available for testing. You can get it from:

    Windows_8_Integration

    Metro specific bug list

    Right now it's quite limited but it provides an insight to the future.

    The Metro build is available from the link I posted earlier - Windows_8_Integration about half way down the page under the heading Metro Test Install.
