There aren’t many alternatives to IE 10 in Windows 8 if you want to run a browser in the Windows 8 layer. The first competitor to bring their browser to the ring is Firefox. We’ve been writing about it for a while, but today we finally got some hands-on time.
Firefox Metro is a nightly build, so there are still quite a few kinks in it. For the most part it works pretty well. I tested it on both a touch device and a standard keyboard/mouse device (which you see below). Scrolling and the tab view can be a bit wonky when they aren’t working, but other than that everything is fine. Even with all the bugs I feel more at home in Firefox Metro than I do in IE 10. Check out the video for the full hands-on!
