Mozilla’s Metro-style Firefox app for Windows 8 now expected on March 18, alongside Firefox 28

Windows 8 enthusiasts will be disappointed to hear that Mozilla has now delayed the release of its Metro-style Firefox app until March 18.

First announced in February 2012, the streamlined browser was previously slated for a December 10 release alongside Firefox 26. It was then pushed back to January 21, to coincide with Firefox 27, according to a set of meeting notes published in September last year.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

As Neowin reports, the official MozillaWiki page for the streamlined Windows 8 app now lists a “forecasted release” of March 18, in conjunction with Firefox 28. While a preview version of the redesigned browser has been available for sometime, Firefox die-hards will need to wait just a little while longer for a public release. Unless Mozilla delays the public release once more, of course.
