Last month, we told you all about Mozilla's plans for a Metro version of Firefox. Now, Mozilla's Brian Bondy has updated his blog with fresh news about the project. As it turns out, a fair bit of work has been done already.
"As of last week, we have a working browser in Metro," says Bondy. "It currently looks and feels the same as the Android browser. You can navigate the web, create tabs, bookmark pages, build history, retain cache, adjust preferences, and more."
Now, as you can probably tell by the screenshot above, the user interface hasn't been Metro-ified just yet—Bondy says the browser still uses UI code from Fennec, Mozilla's mobile browser project. However, some Metro integration is already in place. The browser purportedly supports the Metro file picker, Metro search, Metro share (see above), and Metro snap (so it can run side-by-side with other applications).
Bondy says Mozilla still intends to deliver a "working Firefox prototype on Metro" by the end of this quarter.
