We hope you weren't eagerly anticipating a finished release of Firefox for Windows 8 -- despite releasing a beta of the browser just last month, Mozilla has cancelled the project. There just aren't enough testers using the new interface to justify shipping a completed version, the developer says. It's concerned that the missing feedback could lead to a buggy release that requires too much repair work. Pre-release code will still be available, and Mozilla isn't ruling out a change of heart in the future. For now, though, Windows 8 users will have to switch to a rival like Chrome if they want a touch-friendly alternative to Internet Explorer.
