Mozilla lanza una versión preliminar de Firefox adaptada a Metro

COMPARTIR 0 TWITTEAR

Se acerca el lanzamiento de Windows 8 y muchas compañías se encuentran en plena adaptación de sus aplicaciones a la nueva interfaz Metro. Una de estas compañías es Mozilla, que lleva desde principios de año trabajando en una versión de Firefox que fusione las bondades de Metro con la solidez de uno de los navegadores de Internet más conocidos.

Cuanto más se acerca el lanzamiento de Windows 8, más crece la expectación a su alrededor. La interfaz Metro va a suponer un gran cambio para muchos, acostumbrados al escritorio tradicional, y en las aplicaciones recaerá parte de la responsabilidad para que esa adaptación se lo más llevadera posible. Entre las muchas empresas y desarrolladores que se están apresurando para adaptar su software podemos encontrar a Mozilla, que recientemente ha lanzado una versión preliminar de su conocido navegador Firefox adaptada a la interfaz Metro.

Mozilla asegura en su blog oficial que llevan trabajando en Firefox para Windows 8 desde principios de año. La versión preliminar publicada incluye varias características interesantes, como una nueva página de inicio con estilo Metro, soporte para Firefox Sync (caracterísica similar a la sincronización de datos de Chrome), soporte nativo para gestos, o su punto fuerte: una cuidada interfaz llamada Australis, que vendrá de serie en todo Firefox a partir de la versión 19.

La gran pega de Firefox para Windows 8 es que sólo funcionará para la versión adaptada a procesadores basados en arquitectura x86 y x64, por lo que las tablets con procesadores ARM se quedan fuera por el momento. Una pena, y más teniendo en cuenta la cercanía del lanzamiento de Surface. En cualquier caso, apostaría a que con el tiempo también acabará saliendo una versión para estas tablets.

Por las imágenes, se puede observar el mimo que ha puesto Mozilla con esta versión de Firefox. La nueva pantalla de inicio le va como anillo al dedo, y la interfaz Australis se adapta a la perfección a Metro y a su uso en pantallas táctiles. Faltará comprobar si el navegador está a la altura en lo que a rendimiento se refiere pero, teniendo en cuenta la experiencia que lleva Mozilla detrás, no dudo de que sí lo estará.
