Firefox for Windows 8 Touch Beta (28.0 Beta 1)
Firefox for Windows 8 Touch Beta is ready for download and testing. This touch-friendly, tile-based Firefox is optimized for Microsoft’s Windows 8 Modern UI and designed to ensure users get the best Firefox browsing experience possible on their Windows 8 tablets, touch-screen laptops and other compatible devices.
Firefox for Windows 8 Touch Beta has a new tile-based Firefox start screen with one-tap access to Top Sites, Bookmarks and History. You can continue to use familiar Firefox features like the Awesome Bar.
Firefox for Windows 8 Touch Beta supports Touch and Swipe gestures such as ‘pinch to zoom’ and one-touch swipe transitions. 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.
