The browser, dubbed "Preview Release," will be part of Firefox 26, set to ship on December 10th.
Updates to the browser will continue until final release, adds Mozilla. In time for Firefox 26, Mozilla will merge their Aurora and Beta channel builds, set for release on September 16th and then October 28th. Each release will allow for consumer feedback and then bug updates.
Mozilla began work on the "Modern" user interface in September of last year, but only ever released a rough preview. The company, at the time, said a final release could be ready as early as January 2013 but then delayed that until "Fall 2013."
Google has had a "Modern" version of Chrome since June of last year, and obviously so has Microsoft. Mozilla says the new app will help them remain competitive.
