    I have been loyal to microsoft ring from MS DOS days.

    The windows 95 GUI change I feel was accepted because it was truyl revolutionary and also back then there wasnt many computer users compared to now days, in particular windows users.

    This feels like tho we going back to windows 1, its regressive on a desktop computer.

    I respect microsoft need to break into the mobile market but pushing this on corporate and desktop I think is a huge mistake from them. This firefox app only highlights that, it looks very plain and downgraded. Also i hope they not going to do what android is doing with the silly new OS every 1-2 years as I defenitly dont like how fast windows 8 has came out since windows 7.

    For a Metro application, it's beginning to look quite good...

    It does look like it is developing well, but I could never use a browser without all my bookmarks available 100% of the time as I have it now above opened pages in regular FF - and I could never use a browser that you have to scroll left and right to access stuff.

    Also, I could never use a browser where the tabs aren't seen 100% of the time.

    So not for me. Maybe others will like it.
