Firefox for Windows 8 Touch Beta Ready for Download


Mozilla just released a test version of Firefox for Windows 8 Touch Beta, which the company spent almost a year developing. The Firefox for Windows 8 Touch Beta comes with a touch-friendly, tile-based UI for Microsoft’s Windows 8 early adopters. The Firefox for Windows 8 Touch Beta also supports Touch and Swipe gestures such as ‘pinch to zoom’ and one-touch swipe transitions. Mozilla also added the newly enabled gamepad support and VP9 video playback. Hit the source link below for the download link,

Other key features are:

  • Full, Snapped and Fill views: These options let you chose if you want to view an app full-screen, or ‘snapped’ to a narrow region of the screen (typically to the left of the screen like a sidebar), or if you’d like your app to ‘fill’ the remaining screen area not already occupied by an app in ‘snapped’ state.

  • Visual Navigation: The big tiles on the start screen make browsing a more visually-rich experience and are easy to recognize and tap. The tile-based interface simplifies auto-complete and makes searching quick and easy.

  • Windows Share integration: Share a Web page or a piece of content from any Web page to any of your installed social networks.
