Google Previews Android for Wearables Commented on: 5 weeks ago (March 19, 2014)

Mozilla Kills Modern Version of Firefox Commented on: 5 weeks ago (March 15, 2014)

I doubt that's the problem. IE metro comes with the OS. With Firefox and Chrome, you kind of have to jump through hoops to get to the Metro mode. At the end of the day, it's not an app, but part...
