Ex-Mozilla engineer blames Microsofts rules for Metro Firefoxs death

A former Mozilla engineer who worked on the "Metro" version of Firefox says that poor adoption of Windows 8's radical user interface wasn't behind the decision to shelve the browser.

From Computerworld:

"Is Windows 8.1 'Modern' UI in trouble? No," said Brian Bondy, who led the Metro-ized Firefox development, in a post on his personal blog.

Bondy's "Modern" is another label for what Microsoft originally called "Metro," the colorful, tile-based, flat-style UI that's one of two in Windows 8 and its follow-on, Windows 8.1. The other is a more traditional desktop UI, relatively familiar to the hundreds of millions who rely on Windows 7, Vista or XP.
