The image that you see above is with the latest mock-up of Firefox for Windows 8 touch devices. It was made public by Mozilla during their latest meeting when they usually release a note explaining what has been improved. The final version of the official Windows 8.1 Mozilla app is currently scheduled for release in late January, next year.

The above screenshot shows the new start screen user interface for the upcoming app, but just like VLC, it’s not yet ready.  Firefox’s app will also work for the desktop version of Windows 8 and the start screen will include some helpful hints as well as bookmarks that can be be set up. Mozilla has also revealed that the app will be called “Firefox for Windows 8 Touch”.
