Mozilla announced its intentions to develop
a version of Firefox made specifically to run on Microsoft's Metro interface for Windows 8 some time ago.
Today, Firefox programmer Brian Bondy updated his blog
with a new development update on Firefox for Windows 8 Metro.
Bondy says that the team has made "steady progress" since his last development update three weeks ago.
Bondy says that Firefox for Windows 8 Metro now supports using the operating system's "soft" keyboard, meaning Firefox can now be used on Windows 8-based tablet devices with their touch screen keyboards.
It also now supports Windows 8's secondary tiles feature.
