    Mozilla begins adapting Firefox for Windows 8 Metro environment

    Mozilla has started developing an official port of its Firefox Web browser for the Windows 8 Metro environment. They intend to deliver a fully functional version of the browser that will integrate with the Metro experience and offer a touch-friendly user interface.

    The original plan for a Firefox Metro port was announced earlier this year when Mozilla published its 2012 strategy. The organization's plans for supporting Windows 8 were documented in the roadmap. Development on the port began this week, according to a blog entry published by Mozilla developer Brian Bondy.

    Bondy described some of the technical details surrounding Metro browser development and explained how Mozilla intends to proceed with its implementation. The Metro environment imposes some strict technical limitations on developers, but Microsoft is making an exception for browser vendors.
