Windows 8 Metro Firefox Definition in progress Yuan Wang Vlad Ghetiu (:vladg)


  • This proposal depends on Microsoft providing the same capabilities for Firefox as it does for IE -- running at the Medium level integrity process that allows us the full use of the Win32 API and what we need from Metro, or a set of APIs that allow Mozilla to port Gecko to the WinRT. For the purposes of this feature proposal, I'm assuming we'll get the first and we won't have to port the bulk of Gecko and instead will use the win32 dlls from within Metro.
  • Windows 8 is not complete and may change some or a lot between now and when it's released. We anticipate Beta in February and RTM sometime between June and the end of 2012.
  • Phase 1 will be to build a proof-of-concept for Firefox in Win8 Metro targeting Fx14.
