Firefox 28 launches, but lacks notable features after Mozilla drops Metro version at 11th hour
Mozilla has unveiled Firefox 28.0 FINAL for desktop, with Firefox for Android 28.0 also due for release shortly.
The most notable feature in version 28 is a missing one, with Mozilla pulling the planned Firefox for Metro release for Windows 8/RT shortly before shipping. The end result is an underwhelming desktop update overshadowed by the new Android release.
Mozilla claims it’s dropped the Modern UI due to lack of uptake during the beta-testing program, but this has stripped Firefox 28 of any headline-grabbing new features.
