Mozilla delays Firefox for Windows 8.1 yet again, this time to March 18th
If you haven’t heard already, Mozilla has a Windows 8 friendly browser, with all touch capabilities, in the works. However, the team have stumbled yet again when it comes to the official release day. The browser was expected to be released in December 2013, but the Mozilla team recently revealed on the official Mozilla wiki page that they will now move the release date to March 18.
The reason why Mozilla has moved the release day is because they stated in a blog post that some bugs were still not fixed, so they still think it’s not ready for the general public. Another reason is due to the holiday break – all development by the team has been pushed back by two weeks.
“This touch-friendly version of Firefox has been designed to ensure people get the best browsing experience on their Windows 8 tablet. It has a tile-based Firefox Start experience and supports Firefox Sync, Windows 8 touch and swipe gestures, Snapped and Fill views, and Windows Share integration all delivered with a streamlined, modern and beautiful interface,” Mozilla stated in an official blog post.
But if you’re dying to try out the Firefox optimized with the Modern UI, you’re in luck. The Mozilla team has been working hard on their Modern interface browser, having recently released a pre-beta build back in September. We have already covered the release of the pre-beta build, for the download link and more information, visit this link here.
