According to statistics from Mozilla’s servers, the usage of the beta version of Firefox for Windows 8 never passed the 1,000 users, which is totally different when they see millions of users testing the desktop version of Firefox — that is of course, counting every platform the browser supports, including Windows, OS X, and Linux. The development started back in 2012 to build a Metro-style version of Firefox. Mozilla began by building Firefox based on the x86 architecture; however, because of Microsoft policy, the open source platform never created a Firefox for Windows RT which is based on ARM chips. So we’ll never know how many users would picked Firefox over Internet Explorer in this platform. Mozilla stopping and leaving Windows 8 without a Metro-style version of Firefox isn’t definite. The company says that it will consider resume the project when the Windows 8 Metro takes off, but for now don’t expect anything else to be released.
