    Hi,
    And to answer your question Mozila firefox and google chrome are not banned from Windows 8.But they are the features which are yet to be added in the windows 8 version.The Operating system which we have or which we are using are currently the Beta versions which are being tested by the people and hence the versions of windows 8 are new and there are many changes which are yet to be done.And make them compatible with firefox and chrome would be one of the important feature which microsoft will add soon.

    Friend, it s just said that Mozilla has be shut by Windows 8 as saying that x86 apps will not support these Browser. But, this is under development. It is not yet decided.

    Can you imagine Operating System without supporting Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. They will modify it again and be able to support all the browsers.

    Re: Mozilla Firefox browser is banned in Windows 8 OS? Why they have to do that?

    Yes my dear friend the news that you have heard might be correct.
    Microsoft has a longstanding tradition of not only discouraging competition, but trying to eliminate it by any means possible.

    According to the latest press release of the microsoft regarding windows 8:

    • That x86 apps wouldn't run on Windows on ARM and there would be no third-party code on Windows RT.
    • It is planning to allow only one fully-functioning browser on Windows RT: Microsoft's own Internet Explorer.
    As a result if the above developments are done in the new soon to be released windows 8 then we may no longer use our favourite google chrome and mozilla firefox.

    Following is the share of the browsers all around the world:
    • Internet explorer (34%)
    • Google chrome (31%)

    • Mozilla firefox (24%)

    Re: Mozla Firefox browser is banned in Windows 8 OS? Why they have to do that?




    dear friend,

    Seems like you've heard a rumor that Mozilla Firefox has been banned from windows 8.

    Windows 8 still now in under development mode.

    its true that,in release preview version, Mozilla Firefox doesn't work.

    But you must wait until Microsoft announces full version launch of windows 8.

    At that time you'll also get that Firefox version which will work in windows 8.

    HI,

    YES, dear it is true that in window 8 Microsoft is trying to launch a fully functional browser so that no other browser remain in competition with the INTERNET EXPLORER.
    >> Dear they are going to launch internet explorer 10 with window 8.

    so dear no other browser work in window 8 without internet explorer but dear the full version of window is not released till now so we must have to see what happens.

    THANKS,

    You have got a wrong and absurd rumor from someone that Mozilla Firefox is not permitted in windows 8 release preview .
    Neither Mozilla Firefox nor any other Mozilla web browser is banned or discarded from windows 8 release preview .
    You can as easily perform in Firefox in windows 8 release preview as you were doing in windows 7 .


    Mozilla Firefox is one of the best and demanded web browser in the world so there is no way in which it can be stopped to perform in windows .

    There is no, banning conditions in windows 8 operating system!

    Windows 8 operating system can support firefox, chrome etc....

    It will support every browser that is available as open source

    There might be some problems with consumer, developer versions but not with original full version.

    So no need to worry about firefox compatibility!

    It will work in windows 8 operating system as well.

    Dear friends..

    Windows 8 Is not complete version OS..

    It is a Preview Version..

    IN this preview version Not able to install..


    I think Mozilla and Google chrome work in Full version of windows 8..

    Because Now a days these are the top most browsers..

    So how Can we imagine an OS with out Google crome and Mozilla..

    Thank you and All the best.

    Re: Mozilla Firefox browser is banned in Windows 8 OS? Why they have to do that?

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say............

    1.Don't worry the Mozilla Firefox for Windows 8 OS is yet to be released by the Microsoft.

    2.It was not like that Firefox will not work in Windows 8.

    3.They are planning to release the Fully Functioning browser for the Windows 7.

    4.The old version of it won't work on the Windows 8.

    5.On Metro version of the Firefox it is working.

    That's it is the problem you don't worry they will release it by soon itself.

    Have a nice day...............

    This is wrong.

    In windows 8 OS Mozilla Firefox is not banned.

    This is just rumours.

    You can use Mozilla Firefox in your windows8 OS now.

    You need to download latest version of Mozilla Firefox suitable for windows8.

    You will find some new features in firefox of windows8.
