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.

Interesting, there are Opear browser and other less known browsers available for iPhone and iPad. Firefox is clearly absent. Well, I should not be surprised that Mozilla has long standing of double standards on still supporting of more than decade old Windows XP while dropping support of merely few years old Mac OS X Tiger.

Still can't put Firefox on the Kindle Fire. I would "if" I could. Not enough reason to work at it, I suppose. User base is still too small.
