Windows And thus, Microsoft bites itself in its behind with Metro. As you all surely know by now, the Metro environment in Windows 8, and its accompanying applications, need to follow a relatively strict set of rules and regulations, much like, say, applications on iOS. For one type of application, Metro has already proven to be too restrictive and limited: web browsers. Microsoft has had to define a separate application class [.docx] - aside from Metro and desktop applications - just to make third party web browsers possible for Windows 8.

It's a good thing this is a developer preview and not the full blown release so they can work through these issues. It seems silly to me that Mozilla would complain about there not being a bunch of Google search results though. There are Windows forums that are dedicated to these types of problems and since this is all "new" stuff, you would not expect to find anything in a general search.
