Browser Rivals Fall in Win 8 Metro Line

It is clear that Mozilla and the folks behind Google Chrome aren't fans of Redmond. But Windows 8 is a platform, and you don't win the browser war by ignoring big chunks of the market. So  Google, Mozilla and possibly even Opera will support the Win 8 Metro interface.

That's good news because many of us  like to use multiple browsers.

With this kind of support, Metro may truly  be a huge departure from traditional Windows. As long as it doesn't hang, and doesn't confuse, I'm ready to go.

What about you? Is an all-new interface just what the doctor ordered? Or does it make you a bit ill? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
