Mozilla revealed the Metro-Style Firefox browser which looks similar to IE (Metro) in overall design but, there are some new features which can’t be found in the Metro IE.
The Mozilla Wiki has posted the details on the design of the Firefox browser for Windows 8.
The core design is same as IE (Metro) but, additional features have been added to make it look more similar to Firefox desktop version. It contains the following features:
Movable page from top: Whenever the tabs bar would be opened the whole web page would shift downwards to give full view of the website, unlike the Metro IE which opens the Tabs bar on top the web page making the content hidden at the top of the page behind the tabs bar.
Improved Bottom Navigation Bar: The navigation bar at the bottom of the screen works in the same way as the Metro IE but, the buttons have different styles and the address bar’s style has also changed.
All other Metro-Style browsers (excluding Metro IE) would be launchable from desktop to provide the Metro experience. If, the Firefox is launchable from desktop then there could be plugin support in it.
Google is also working on the Metro-Style Chrome browser for Windows 8. It appears that there would be a tough competition between Metro IE, Chrome and Firefox about best performance and ease of access. However, there isn’t any news from Opera and Apple about Metro-Style Opera and Safari browsers respectively.
