Firefox For Windows 8 Touch Beta Is Now Available For Download

Firefox Windows 8 Touch Download

Mozilla has finally released its beta version of Firefox for Windows 8 touch devices. Mozilla claims that this Firefox version is designed to ensure users get the best Firefox browsing experience possible on their Windows 8 tablets, touch-screen laptops and other compatible devices. It has a new tile-based Firefox start screen with one-tap access to Top Sites, Bookmarks, and History. It even includes the Awesome bar and support for swipe gestures such as ‘pinch to zoom’ and one-touch swipe transitions.

  • 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.

If you download it, then share feedback and file any bugs.
