The Mozilla Foundation plans to release a new, touchscreen-oriented version of its Firefox browser that will be compatible with both Windows 8 and Windows RT. The final version is expected to be available for download on December 10, 2013.



Mozilla's road map schedules a dedicated Windows 8/RT version of Firefox for release before the end of the year. The new browser is likely to make the most of the defining features of Microsoft's latest operating system, including its famous "live tiles" and the ability to pin web pages and services to the home screen.

The final version is scheduled to arrive more than one year after the launch of Windows 8.
